Particle Dreams (1988)
Advanced particle animation
1) Directed by Karl Sims.
2) Contains a collection of dream sequences created using 3D particle systems techniques. Behavior rules are applied to thousands of individual particles to model complex phenomena such as an explosion, a snowstorm, a tumultuous head, and a waterfall. Data-parallel computation was used to perform physical simulations on thousands of particles simultaneously, one processor for each particle
3) Made on Connection Machine CM-2.
