Visual Design

Dan asked me why I use particles: on the one hand, they are beautiful; on the other hand, they are powerful and symbolize possibilities.

Prototyping

Austin and Dan suggested I use simpler and more intuitive input so users can focus more on animations themselves. Finally I built animations with AE, built the interactive part with processing and Makey Makey. I also made a small control panel.

Implementation:

  1. Upload my project to a local server.
