STICKS is an interactive artwork made in collaboration with Eddie Elliot.

To better observe the mathematical and pragmatic nature of affine geometry, I partnered with programmer Eddie Elliot. Together we produced Sticks- an interactive site that allows users to see various translations of space following the rules of parallelism that apply to affine geometry.

Synched with the user's set browser time, STICKS animates day, night and twilight hours of the 2015 spring equinox. The movement of the constellations, mapped by parallel geometry, are activated by the motion of the user's pointer in the display screen, producing erratic and spontaneous compositions of color.

Users are welcome to play with and design their own composition for a print with SticksPrints. Click HERE
