These pieces are part of a project in which I mapped the undulating motions of jellyfish and other sea creatures using a video effect called motion tracking. Motion tracking allows you to create a motion “path” based on the location of a chosen point within your video image as it moves over the duration of the clip. By applying a paint effect to the resulting path, I generated a kind of tracing.
