Dark Motion Backgrounds by Aix Sponza for Pro Sieben

A couple of weeks ago, Pro Sieben introduced its new on air identity, an elegant and visually appealing new look that is flawlessly excecuted. I had noticed some interesting abstract backgrounds, but I did not know that Aix Sponza was responsible for them until I found this nice breakdown on their website.
It is also worth mentioning that they used Houdini for many of the simulations.
