Here IN THE LABS SECTION OF OUR SITE, YOU'LL FIND EXPERIMENTS, EXPLORATIONS AND WORKS-IN-PROGRESS THAT GIVE INSIGHT INTO OUR CREATIVE PROCESS.
EXPLORE, AND ENJOY.

VORONOI patterns

Interactive Installation

Leviathan developed an interactive installation that makes learning about scientific patterns captivating. Programmed with TouchDesigner, Voronoi patterns come to life with custom touchscreen technology. These patterns become more complex as users engagement increases.

 

Fragmented Particles

Dynamic Simulation

Simulated shatter effect created in Houdini with Bullet Solver and new Particle Dynamics Engine. Shattered Pieces generate particle debris according to their velocity motion. This visual effect will be rendered with a glass material in slow motion for an upcoming project.

Touchscreen

Interactive Fluid Dynamics

Leviathan is leveraging built in capabilities of TouchDesigner to generate an interactive 2D fluid simulation. Events are triggered from a touchscreen to introduce fluids into the scene. As the fluid is advected, it takes into account the boundaries of the objects in the scene and flows around them.

Underscope

FITC Behind The Scenes

When we were chosen to produce the opening titles for FITC Amsterdam’s 2014 event, the team here at Leviathan was very enthusiastic about the endeavor…so much, that we had almost our entire studio involved. Since FITC centers around both design and technology, we made sure to create not only a moving piece of film, but also new filmmaking techniques. This video chronicles our efforts and explains some of the cool tricks you’ll see in the show’s opening.

 

Ghost Box

Pepper's Ghost Prototype

When you want to prove something is possible, sometimes you simply have to build it. A culmination of ideas once pitched to clients, such as projection mapping a moving object and integrating a Pepper’s Ghost ‘hologram’ effect, are now reflected in a single experiment we call Ghost Box. Using projectors housed in a portable enclosure and providing control by a tablet or phone, our team sought to demonstrate how most any product of any size can be brought to life by projection with you as the director.
