This semester I’ve been taking a class at ACCAD with Jeremy Patterson called Interactive Arts Media. It is essentially a web design class, but I’ve been fixated on emphasizing the “Arts” part of the class description (which is kind of how I approach all of my work).
Inspired by sites like superbad.com and feedthehead.net, I have been working on a web site that treats the medium as something other than a container for words.
What I’ve made so far could be categorized as a toy, which I think I’m ok with. Toys are designed to encourage play, curiosity, and imagination. Hm. I’m having Candace Feck “at the point of utterance” moment. Maybe toys are actually exactly what I am most interested in making.
Here’s a link to the site in progress:
