The piece uses a webcam to track any form of movement to displace particles. The letters of the Skive logo are broken up and forced to the edges of the participant’s silhouette. This creates a chaotic outline as the pieces attempt to rush back into their original places to reform the letters. The springiness of the particles brings a fluidic which encourages play.
This artwork allows the user to experience an augmented reality in which the flow of ribbons and particles can be controlled. It works by capturing a colour from an object (in this case, a green glove and the light from my mobile phone) and then using this object to drag the ribbons around the screen.
