According to his Vimeo bio, Australian artist Andy Thomas “specialises in particle simulation based motion graphics, inspired by nature and technology”. A simpler way of saying it might be that he makes shapes that react to sounds.
In the video below Thomas makes visuals for two bird sounds from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision’s archives. It kinda reminds me of that scene in Ratatouille where Remy imagines the colours of taste.

My favourite animation studio, Australia’s Rubber House, is back with some new work. Greg and Ivan were recently presented with a dream opportunity from Adult Swim; carte blanche to write, design, and produce as many short animations as they could come up with.
There are eight shorts currently airing on Adult Swim and the duo are posting them, one by one, to their tumblr (here) every day this week. Watch two of my favourites so far, below.
