Solace

Solace is an interactive, animated film by Evan Boehm based on celebrated science fiction writer Jeff Noon’s short story about a near future in which marketing and addiction are disturbingly intertwined.

The fabric of the film is a generative, interactive liquid written in code. Using the library paper.js as its base, the team built an engine that produced a cartoon-like physics system that could respond to user interactions and generate character animation in real-time. A visitor to the film uses their cursor to poke, pop and pull this liquid to play with the story.

To weave it all together, a real-time audio sound system was also produced to provide the atmospheric soundtrack. The audio responds to the user, and the story, in real-time.
