Blog . Interactive Art Applications from Artist Scott Snibbe
Scott Snibbe is a fine artist specializing in interactive art, whose work is been featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (New York). He has collaborated with musicians and filmmakers alike, specifically Björk and James Cameron. In his artist statement, he writes: The purpose of my work is to bring meaning and joy to people's lives. My work is frequently interactive, requiring viewers to physically engage with diverse media that include mobile devices, digital projections, and electromechanical sculpture. By using interactivity, I hope to promote an understanding of the world as interdependent; destroying the illusion that each of us, or any phenomenon, exists in isolation from the rest of reality." Take a look at the once museum exclusive applications now available for only $1.99 in iTunes! Gravilux Available for $1.99 in iTunes, Gravilux allows users to pull a grid of simulated stars into stunning celestial designs. With options of music, color, gravitational pull, as well as the amount and thickness of stars, the design possibilities are endless! After twisting and tapping to burst the stars around the grid, designs can be uploaded to Facebook, Twitter, and sent via email. According to the iTunes description, "Gravilux was first released as a work of interactive art by Scott Sona Snibbe that was only available in galleries and museums that became a best-selling hit on iOS, and inspired Björk to work with him and his studio on the first App Album: Biophilia." Bubble Harp Bubble Harp, costing $1.99 in iTunes, is an application that draws bubbles with many streams and endpoints that multiply continuously with the tap of a finger. Based on the length and frequency of a user's movement, Bubble Harp records and replays tapping as music in scales such as Chromatic, Whole Tone, and Blues. Bubbles can be erased, scales can alternate, and an image of a finalized mosaic bubble window can be saved to your iPad's photos or posted directly to Facebook! Antograph Antograph allows users to define invisible paths for hundreds of ants to follow. Realistic legs and antennae scurry as the marching ants follow your path to create works of art! An occasional ant will realistically stray from the path to wander across the screen, and users have the option to change sizes, erase previous designs, and save their work to share directly through Facebook and email. iTunes - $1.99
