DIAMONDGATE

DIAMONDGATE is an evolving set of interactive modules that use rollOvers and gestural strokes to disturb the shapes within a dynamic field.Consistent within the set, the field is a square turned 45 degrees to form a diamond filled with smaller diamonds in varying states. The images that emerge from this "liquid" drawing slate are transient, fleeing the screen like memories disappearing in fluid time . . .

DROP.64
leaves trailing remainders of a brushstroke. 64 diamonds flicker in and out of being, like drops in a puddle.
INTURN
opens to the space beyond the grid, Diamonds flip and turn in a series of transition gates.
CROSSING
sets a grid of square worms in motion as they interweave a cycled journey across the field.
ORBITAL JAM
sets diamonds in orbit around a base grid ina constructivist generating machine.
DEPCHARGE
sets 4 layers in an architectonic grid that rises and falls in 3-D space.
POOL
is a study in liquid motion
responding to the rollOver like water to raindrops


riverRun
is a related experiment, no longer set in the diamond field. instead, footsteps in a constantly rolling stream . . .
