Award Reason

This work creates a "world of light and sound" that is both beautiful and soothing. The innovative delay functions, which respond to mouse movements, create an elegant atmosphere, although the default environment, when the mouse is not moving, is quite enjoyable in its own right. In a world inundated with photo-realistic 3D computer graphic games that emphasize interaction above all else, this is a work of peace and tranquility worthy of the name "interactive art Division".
