Artist Statement:


    Intersection represents the choices we make in life and who we choose to make them with. Looking through a window on a rainy day, we see a constant flow of cars choosing to go in different directions at an intersection while raindrops tell a similar but hopeful story. Intersection is about the cyclical nature of how man and woman unite then separate.

    This piece also demonstrates a novel technique for animating computer-generated raindrops on any smooth surface. To develop Intersection, a unique formulation for creating several layers of organic masks was researched, developed, and applied. Adobe After Effects was used for all compositing, and Adobe Premiere was used for editing footage in the background.
