All visuals are rendered in real-time. All content is procedurally generated and reacts to music. Interaction is created through a midi-controller and smartphone clients.

SymbiosisS is part of a collection of textile interfaces, SymbiosisO (“O” for objects), which behave as organic displays and react to definable impulses by showing pre-defined patterns that animate slowly over the surface. It welcomes viewers to sit and rest on soft-folded material that displays an active, slowly shifting pattern. SymbiosisS was selected for inclusion in the SIGGRAPH 2012 Art Gallery.
WeWereMonkeys: Mihai Wilson and Marcella Moser
Five sky-sailors discover a crystal meteor containing a lost mythical female creature. An epic journey through fantastical worlds ensues as the sailors struggle to return her to her people. This music video was shown at the SIGGRAPH 2012 Electronic Theater. This animation as well as all SIGGRAPH conference content is documented in the ACM Digital Library.

This technical paper was presented at SIGGRAPH Asia 2012. The authors used an automatic shape composition method to fuse two shape parts which do not overlap and may contain sharp features. This scenario is often encountered when modeling man-made objects.

ACM SIGGRAPH members enjoy unlimited access to the Digital Library.
This i3D 2013 paper presents a technique for interactively deforming and colliding with mesostructures at a per-texel level.
This SIGGRAPH 2012 Technical Papers presents a physically based system to simulate and control the locomotion of soft-body characters without skeletons. The system uses the finite-element method to simulate the deformation of the soft body and instruments a character with muscle fibers to allow it to actively control its shape.
OpenGL is the most widely available library for creating interactive computer graphics applications across all of the major computer operating systems. This SIGGRAPH 2012 Course is an accelerated introduction to programming OpenGL, emphasizing current methods for using the library.
