Tripolar

Abstract:
This app animates entangled, abstract forms that are always changing. This happens thanks to a pendulum swinging on a magnetic basis. These chaotic systems return every minute to the starting point producing dramatic changes on the track of the pendulum. Through the seamless movement of the starting point in microscopic increments towards the fingers, the “Tripolar” allows to explore points amidst pixels, simulating a resolution much more accurate than the current screen. To push the boundaries of the experience between the software artist/developer and the creative interactions by the users, the last [and current] version of the app allows to move, add and remove the magnets in order to create endless configurations.
