Title:

    Dewy: a condensation display

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    This sketch presents Dewy, a display surface of ‘pixelized’ condensation, creating images, patterns and text out of the process of the physical state change of water. Dewy works like a spatially controlled fogged window, one that can communicate back to you, conveying information through a slow and subtle means. In developing Dewy, we have been motivated by an aversion to the ‘visual pollution’ of many existing systems of public media display and seek to create a alternative method of display which references natural processes and can blend seamlessly in its materiality into varying environments.
