Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

My latest work in Moment Factory was for the New Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Moment Factory creates 4 hours of digital content, , as well as multiple interactive capsules. My principal work was on design and production for Time Tower “Kinetic Skin” layer.

Kinetic skin is composed by thousand of individual pieces that move in diferent ways creating animations and forms playing with rotations and shadows. On designing face I create multiple Thinking Particle tools that help me move procedurally this pieces using gradient maps, distance to objects and other activation metodes (Map transfer idea comes after see how useful this tools can be).

I animate “Kinetic Skin” capsule, a 4 minutes animation  where the kinetic skin is the principal element, an evolving animation where diferent forms are evolving playing with displacement and rotation. Also I create kinetic skin transitions for other parts of Time Tower. All animations were exported and final rendered by ObliqueFx.

Other jobs I was involved on LAX project was “Outher Structure” animations, (arms moving on Time Tower on 3:50), and transition design for panels.
