Emotionalist explores ongoing struggle between reason and emotion, visualizing their very different natures. The design of interactivity amplifies this struggle by making the element of emotion disappear when interaction fades away. The cubic space, which represents the world in which emotions exists, stays indifferent.
Simple user interaction (mouse movement and clicking) generates reactive images and audio. The images are created from a single cube (static element) and a sphere (reactive element) in real time 3D, and are a direct response to user's action, or a lack of it.
Concept, design and development: Przemysław J. Moskal
Music: "Bacu" by kareem (zhark recordings berlin / released on the Warsaw Electronic Festival Compilation 2003)
