The Wombats "Techno Fan" video

Check out this beautiful music video for The Wombats by The Found Collective. Collaborating with Memo Akten to use C++ and OpenFrameworks, they created a custom application to process the footage. The result is a beautiful triangulating pattern that gives an indie band a techno reference, as though the technique was inspired by the lyrics. The stills rendered out of this system are simply jaw-dropping and combine with the original footage excellently. I knew I was a techno fan, this video just confirmed it.
