P O L Y R O T O R v1.1 – presentation

by in

The P O L Y R O T O R is our digital drawing tool. We use it over ink-on-paper illustrations to represent the digital layer of all things over real life representations. The reason it looks rather skeletal and low-res is we want to manifest how new media makes us more tolerant of lower resolutions over a higher quantity of information and dynamism. Take it as a new form of minimalism, defined by its weight in kilobits. So the tool we built is very fast, dynamic, light, and drawings complete themselves as dots connect. On top of this, the P O L Y R O T O R  is set to add a bit of movement to a drawing’s pivot-points, making it an approximative but clear enough mode of representation.

Le P O L Y R O T O R est notre outil de dessin numérique. Nous l’utilisons au-dessus d’illustrations à la main traditionelles pour représenter une couche digitale se superposant à la réalité. La raison pour laquelle il arbore un aspect squelettique et basse-définition est que nous voulons qu’il manifeste à quel point les nouveaux médias nous rendent plus tolérants aux mauvaises résolutions, favorisant la quantité d’information au détriment de la qualité d’affichage. Prenez cela comme une nouvelle forme de minimalisme, défini par son poids en kilobits.  L’outil que nous avons construit est très rapide, dynamique, léger, et les dessins se complètent d’eux-mêmes tandis que les points se connectent les uns aux autres. En plus de cela, le P O L Y R O T O R offre la possibilité d’ajouter un peu de mouvement aux points de pivot du dessin, le transformant en un mode de représentation approximatif mais suffisamment clair.
