Watch thousands of stars as they swirl and swell around your fingers. Gravity is a real-time physics simulation of dust particles that are gravitationally attracted to your finger. A sensor detects users hand and finger positions which drives both the center of gravitation in the simulation, as well as generative audio to match. By placing the physics of the simulation first and foremost, the piece invites users to focus on the core mechanics of how the universe around us works, while simultaneously showing the beauty that naturally arises from these rules.
Gravity is an interactive installation by Xiaohan Zhang that will be featured at our ART+TECH Festival MOVEMENT
