Try to catch the loop! Glenn Marshall made this beauty completely with processing. The forms and motions… Somehow I find it hard to grasp that whole thing and how the loop fits together. I think it is a very meditative one. Thank you for this work! I also recommend to watch the other works from Glenn Marshall.

A related Processing-work is the Weird Fishes video from Robert Hodgin.

Update: I just found out, that Glen used a self.developed system for his video, he calls “The Zeno”. Get more details about it here.
