Touch the Heart is a web-based interactive project, built around a 3D physics simulation of two “hearts” hanging from “ropes”. People can pull and release each heart, making them oscillate and eventually collide, while “moving” around the scene. The artwork reflects on how our experience changes our perceptions and perspectives on the world. Both sound and visuals are synthesized in real-time according to the simulation. The whole rendering varies along time, in a day-and-night cycle. The project is written in JavaScript and GLSL, leaving most rendering details to custom written shaders.
