Swirling sands in a digital dance

Another beautiful human and digital interaction from the artists who created Pixel, which we looked at a few weeks ago. Sable cinétique is a digital table that sends whirls of pixels around any object that touches it, creating a magical choreography and visual experience.

Add the perfection and mysticism of a crystal ball, and the effect is quite stunning. Complement that with more spheres, and the dance gets layered and playful.

Why is it so mesmerising? Maybe because the swarming effect of the light pixels looks both random and choreographed at the same time. Beautiful.
