A series of studies in geometric symmetry, dynamic particles and interactivity on a large multitouch screen. It explores techniques of manipulating a digital sculpture throughout the interaction of the users. It is inspired by the work of the digital artist Quayola as well as similar inspired modernist cubist works such as Picasso´s “Seated Nude” and the classical French painter Poussin. The users are able to alter the geometry and the physics, which changes the representation of objects from different viewpoints. The sources of study are various Nebula images taken from the Hubble Space Telescope. Those images are exposed into an abstract form, furthermore, is possible to manipulate the digital information in real-time with the touch of the users.
Visuals and Interactivity Design:
