Text Rain is a famous interactive installation by Camille Utterback (1999). letters from a poem about motion and the body would rain down on viewers, resting on anything above a certain darkness threshold. If there is a flat surface for a long enough period words and sentence fragments become legible. Text Rain was revolutionary for it’s time because it was in the first waves of interactive art and was written before there were high level programming tools. I re-wrote text rain in Processing for this assignment.
