Inspired by the Nike Fuel band, FIELD is an audiovisual experiment powered by movement. This HTML5 experiment uses the keyboard and mouse to manipulate audio and visual elements on-screen in realtime. The more you play, the more the experience responds. The visuals react to your keyboard and mouse, becoming more complex, organic and mesmerizing with your movements. When you stop, it stops. The experience is totally unique each time you step up to play.
As you begin to interact, the audio starts as a simple pulse; while a corresponding heartbeat is formed in a perfect grid. The more you interact and gradually add layers of rhythm to the song, the heartbeat turns into a chaotic free-for-all of dots. Stop playing with your keyboard and mouse and it'll return to the heartbeat.
We worked with electronic music producer Nosaj Thing to create a unique track for the experience. We were inspired by his process when he performs live music. As he performs, he has visual projections react in real-time to the music he is creating.
We worked with Nike to draw inspiration from the Nike Fuel band. We used the colorful dots of the band as a visual guide. While the Fuel band rewards athletes for moving, our experience rewards movement with audio and visual.
Next project: Bling VR
