The P O L Y R O T O R is our digital drawing tool. We use it over ink-on-paper illustrations to represent the digital layer of all things over real life representations. The reason it looks rather skeletal and low-res is we wanted to portray how new media make us more tolerant of lower resolutions (think mp3s), as a trade-off for a higher quantity of information and dynamism. Take it as a new form of minimalism, or digital brutalism defined by its weight in kilobytes. The tool we built is very fast, dynamic, light, and drawings complete themselves as dots connect. On top of this, the P O L Y R O T O R is set to add a bit of movement to a drawing’s pivot-points; a bit of life through sinusoidal motion.
Below are a few examples of this tool in use in our book series.
