It was finally time to revisit the Ribbons piece I did a while back. It has been a favorite of mine and was in desperate need of a rework.
This version, now called tendrils for obvious reasons, features a few black vines that forever grow upwards. As they grow, smaller tendrils branch out from the main one and slowly unwind. Once they grow as much as they can, they start to break down into particulate matter that is swept away by a perlin noise wind.
More versions of this project to follow, but for now, how about a video! Vimeo version below or you can see the more detailed, bigger download version in lovely Quicktime format.
Added another video. Slightly different particulate matter.
