ink space is a small experimental drawing tool which uses the accelerometer on your android device to move the drawings you make in 3d. It’s part of the android experiments initiative.
The project itself it fairly straight forward you can draw, move the phone by tilting in different directions, adjust line that you are drawing, create an animated line which pulses and re-draws itself and record an animated gif of whatever you make. Double-tapping (or hitting the trash icon in the menu) clears the app.
As an artist I’m experimenting with new types of drawing tools, and what does drawing in the 21st century look like — ink space is research in that realm. If have a drawing basically in your hands, what does it look like to move around that drawing and experience more as a dimensional form that requires you to both draw and move.
This project owes a great deal to Amit Pitaru’s Rhonda, which I helped with, and to Matt Deslaurier’s excellent article “drawing lines is hard” (http://mattd..). I’d also like to thank Anthony Tripaldi and Arturo Castro (as well as the broader openframeworks community).
