The paint streaks in this image were obviously made in a hurry — they’re the remains of the furious bursts of energy of someone playing the game Fruit Ninja on an iPad. The artwork is part of a project that explores the byproduct of human interaction with digital touch systems. By extracting the oil-stained remains of finger smudges on a screen, the work captures a beautiful and enigmatic “handmade” quality. This image came from the blueprint developers designed for our fingers to play the so-called “greatest fruit-slicing game in the world”.
