zampette (2020)


zampette (ovvero xilomanzia), 2020,
realtime software, 3d computer graphics

A 3d graphics app that continuously practices xylomancy, a form of divination using twigs and their position and interaction. Here, the virtually infinite shapes created by the program seem to draw the symbols of an unknown pictographic or ideogrammatic alphabet. The title zampette loosely refers to the expression “chicken’s scratch” referring to impossible to read handwriting.
