Watch a three-minute movie of the TED2008 BIGVIZ sketches, created by Autodesk animator and compositor Keith Chamberlain, with music scored by TEDster Michael Montes.
The images created by Kevin Richards and David Sibbet during the TED2008 are set to music and animated using gorgeous complexity modeling. The hundreds of individual sketches are transformed into rivers of data, DNA strands, and galaxies of ideas.
Watch a behind-the-scenes view with Sibbet that illuminates the integration of hand-rendered art, Wacom tablets, and the multi-touch wall. Unbelievable, really.
