Friday, October 15th, 2010

“After decades of clumsy museum installations, interactive art has found an unlikely home on the iPhone, and it’s oddly fun. All of digital artist Scott Sona Snibbe’s apps are worth the low price of admission, but Bubble Harp is the most unique. Each tap creates a new cell-like element—a white dot and white membrane that crowds in among the other cells as they twitch and flow across the black screen. There’s music, too, but the real thrill is in creating stark, pulsing little doodles that are weirdly evocative and organic.”
