IOGraphica

An application that turns your daily routine work on the computer into contemporary art.

Using a postmodernism method and challenge of previous conceptions of what art constitutes at all, IOGraph turns mouse movements into contemporary art. The idea is clear and simple — you have the program running in the background while doing your usual daily stuff at the computer. Go back to IOGraph after a while and grab a unique piece of contemporary art.
