I was asked to create an abstract landscape of microchips and circuits for the cover of Nature, and to give it some animated magic for the online component. The article, about Moore’s Law (the principle at technology will decrease in size and increase in efficiency at a steady rate) was very interesting, too. I never thought about how so much information can be packed into microscopic spaces, or how we could ever reach a point when chips don’t get smaller or cheaper. I really enjoyed working on this piece! It’s fun to just focus on the interplay of shapes in space, and animating little sparks is extremely satisfying.
