Glowing Pathfinder Bugs (2011) Excerpt
Excerpt from the project Glowing Pathfinder Bugs.
Pixels become independent creatures that move through time and space in this playful, interactive work. Glowing Pathfinder Bugs uses projection to visualize virtual bugs that participants can interact with in a real sandpit. The bugs are aware of their surroundings and respond to the shapes in the world around them. Viewers can pick bugs up, dig holes, and create mounds that the bugs must react to. If the bugs are squashed, they die, but if they live, they evolve to become butterflies.
