Magnetic Ink began as a tangent from the flocking studies I was working on at the time. The thinking was simple. What if the flocking birds rained down a fine mist of ink onto a sheet of virtual paper. At the same time, they have ribbons that hang from their feet and if they fly low enough, the ribbon will drag on the paper and erase the ink.
This is the process video…
The second iteration involved recreating the Magnetosphere study and using those particles as the source of the ink.
