The radiance of our faces no longer come from happiness or sunshine, rather they are the result of screens reflecting on our skin. This is a mini project commenting on the fact that we are constantly in front of some sort of screen throughout our daily lives. I wanted to create a toy that can be used to control the images in which I am controlled. The box is supposed to be something that’s easily played with and looks just as shiny and attractive as the gadgets we use on a daily basis.

From this project, I learned how to connect a digital accelerometer to a Processing sketch through Arduino. It was a challenge getting there but with lots of help, it finally worked. The accelerometer is just controlling the frames of the animated gifs from the tilt shift of the x axis.
