Reason for Award
This work suggests new possibilities for the future of interactivity. The new pictures and sounds are automatically generated in response to the movement of the user. However, the device does not respond by simply reflecting the person’s movements straight away; instead, the movement of the pixels simulates the movements of groups of creatures, and the way in which they respond to the stimulation dictates how the image changes. It was the beauty and novelty of the shifting images that most impressed us.
