pinwheels

The pinwheels project continues the study of Ambient Fixtures to communicate
digital information at the periphery of human perception through ambient media.
This project takes fields of pinwheels and explores what arrangements create interfaces
that are intuitive and informative for the user while being an ambient source
of information. Its other focus is on finding interesting application domains
and ways to computationally map the information to the pinwheels. Its current
application domains include stock market activity monitoring, web site hits tracking,
natural wind movement, and server packet monitoring.
