We are always fond of projects that use Desktop as a creative landscape. From Screen Capture to Sound by Satoru Higa to 114.psd Type by Emilio Gomariz these projects manipulate the predictable to produce the exquisite. The latest experiment in the similar category is Teary Filter by Shohei Fujimoto, using similar openFrameworks feature as Satoru Higa, lets you manipulate the area captured below the floating window. As you drag the window, it "tears" whatever is below it.
Created by Shohei Fujimoto, Trace Ribbon is a device that automatically and continuously records and plays back movement. From reading the movements of the user via Leap Motion, it mirrors an organism that does not actually exist while simultaneously gaining an understanding of the rules of the movements that are physically taking place.
