In collaboration with visual effects software developers in the US and Germany, fluid dynamic particle simulations are rendered into photorealistic clouds in the shape of abstract, meteorological, and anthropomorphized forms thereby inducing the human perceptual phenomenon of pareidolia. A script was generated from hundreds of pages of scraped forum commentary. The text was then re-mixed and compiled into a semi-logical and absurdist dialogue for actors.
