illucia is a OSC based codebending instrument by Chris Novello aka paperkettle. It is a USB device with physical jacks that correspond to software patch points, which can be connected and disconnected using patch cables. It is also a console for routing information between computer programs, and strives to create relationships across systems that don't usually interact. Chris has already designed a number of applications that interact with the console, some using Processing, others using MaxMSP. Whilst the applications themselves are quite simple they are nevertheless means to raise questions how controlling a particular application via a specific interface can change the experience of it.
