Light Divides the Square
Directed by Kimberly Burleigh
Produced by Kimberly Burleigh
This work follows in the tradition of experimental cinema and abstract animation. It features "rippling caustics,"
or refracted light patterns, cast by a virtual fluid body created in a 3D animation program. To create the light compositions
I used the organizing forces of a square format for the fluid body and invisible shape-shifting objects to perturb the fluid
surface and initiate the ripples. The images in this animation are not achievable in reality.
