I decided on coral as the concept for this design primarily because I watched the Discovery Channel programme Discovering the Coral Sea a few weeks ago, in which the main protagonists and their group discover and protect coral. The documentary made me feel the beauty of coral. At the same time, I felt sad and sorry for the extinction of coral due to climate change, so I decided to use coral as a starting point to design and recreate the beauty of coral using CG and geometric language. I hope people would feel the love in it and be able to associate it with the idea of preserving the climate and the environment. I tried to depict them in sketches and found that this seemingly chaotic but orderly creature could be described geometrically. I copied and abstracted the main features of the coral, extracting the main curves and redesigning them. Then, I modelled the abstracted geometric patterns parametrically, using textures and functions to give them a more orderly appearance. In this step, I spent a lot of time dealing with the model parameters, rendering and animating the logic, and ultimately wanted to express the geometric beauty of the coral.
