The project depicts the story of a life within the cube and through particles, the life force for attempts to break free. The life begins as a cube, a simple particle and in its’ attempt to break free, the life degrades and eventually ends up as a huge mass of particles that eventually run away.

Completed during my final year at the Cambridge School of Art, I used this project to exhibit my semester’s study into dynamic particles. For this project, I used 3DS Max to compose and render the scene with Thinking Particles used as the particle generator.
