(SURFACE TENSION) | Dejan Radovanovic | Mantra VR
Canadian Director Dejan Radovanovic, Studio UMMAGUMMA, created (Surface Tension) for the Generative Gallery, MARS Contemporary Art Center Moscow. The beautifully evolving art video is a perfect expression of Jordan Nobles’ music composition.
(Surface Tension) is a 12 minute “flat” 4k generative art video, made in After Effects with Mettle Mantra VR plugin for all the stylization FX. Mantra supports Flat, 360 Mono and Stereo Over/Under and SideBySide formats.
“From the first encounter with Mettle products, it was clear to me that the creators of this software have been thinking about utilizing it primarily from a creative side, and I think that you have succeeded in making your software the most intuitive on the market at the moment. That is for us, artists, of vital importance in the process of creation.”
