Artist Eyal Gever has turned a battle between two fighters into an abstract 3D printed artwork. Gever, whose previous work has involved simulating the physics of car crashes to create monolithic collision sculptures (as well as other 3D simulations of catastrophic events), used 3D video capture technology of the two fighters, filtered through custom software to create the piece.

After capturing one of the fighters kicking the other and the after effects of the impact, the software animated the traces of their movements, turning their motion into colorful trails which could then be used to create the artwork.

Gever has created sculptures from a variety of simulated events: from nuclear explosions to walls collapsing or water splashing. Each one preserving the moment of impact or action—what he calls “states where rest and motion exist together”—in an abstracted sculpture born from a computer simulation of the event.
