It seems that whenever I switch on my computer, I open IOGraph to make some images. They don’t disappoint.
This one was created in about half the time of the last one I posted, but I was actually doing some work this time.
The other day I stumbled across a piece of software which, unashamedly, is giving me some quite geeky fun. Called IOGraph, it tracks the movements of the computer mouse or trackpad and turns it into ‘modern art’ in a style not too dissimilar to artist, Jackson Pollock.
You can have it running in the background and a few hours later, when you have finished what you are doing on the computer, you will find a unique image that is based on where your mouse is on the screen. The programme which gives you a live preview of what it is doing or creating, shows lines for movements, and if you have the mouse stationary, a dot appears, the longer the mouse is stationary results in a larger dot.
I’ve noticed from using it that there are some areas of my iMac screen that I very rarely use, such as the bottom left hand side of the screen, or in fact, the left hand side of the screen in general.
Below is the mouse trackings for almost 4 hours and it is wonderful.
