This digital image looks charmingly handmade, but it’s actually the byproduct of human interaction with digital touch systems: the oil-stained remains of finger smudges on a screen. The composition is an artifact of gestures — a series of screen taps and swipes. It reveals the blueprints that developers designed for our fingers using the iPad app for the game Paper Toss. On a broader level, it tells the tale of how our modern society communicates and navigates amidst a rapidly expanding digital landscape.
