2nd Digital Art (Interactive Art) Division Excellence Award

One-line.com project


MAEDA John (Idea Planner / Program Designer / Advisor) [Japan]

Reason for Award

Most works fail to take advantage of the strengths of interactive media. Viewers and players are only able to participate in them passively. This work, by contrast, is based on an elegant concept that brings full interactivity to the world created by the artist. The simple one-line drawings are easy for anyone to understand, and the project combines both the active pleasure of creating your own abstract art with the passive pleasure of viewing the works of others. The result is a world that seems to be bound together by this single thread that the artist has spun.
