I think that historically we’ve used technology to sever our minds from our bodies. We seem to habitually seek distraction from our immediate, physical, and feeling situation and we build technology to enable it. In my opinion this is really bad news for everyone. I don’t know if interactive installation can turn this trend around and use technology to instead “re-embody” our urban and personal experiences—maybe for just a few minutes, for a few people—but I’m really interested in asking that question in particular.

patternleaf is me: Eric Miller. I am available for hire as a software/web/creative-code/installation developer. I can also build you a water garden.
This site is built with the magnificent Three.js. If you're not seeing an animated, 3D wintry scene, I suggest trying Chrome. The tree and landscape are generated procedurally on each load.
The site's a work in progress and rough around the edges but funky ideas are simmering! Until then I hope you like the wintry scene.
Performance seems pretty rough! Would you like to switch to the 2D version?
(Everything seems to work best in a recent version of Chrome!)
