Waste (Time), Want (Interaction)
Exhibition: waste not, want not (curated online by Shaun Kardinal)
Programmed using Processing, this interactive piece elucidates the user's own proclivity toward mindless online engagement. Analogous to our incessant desire to refresh our Facebook feed, clicking 'like' anywhere on the interface generates random colour patterns in Facebook blue. However, when left alone, the tendancy is for the piece to fade to calm, sedate white.
