Project #20424 — iteration #777Minted on November 9, 2022 at 21:25
“Klyft” is part of the fxhash interactive minting experience at PARIS+ par Art Basel.
Klyft is a juxtaposition of two different projections for the future. One, made by the World Economic Forum, suggests that the global gender gap will have closed by the year 2154. The other, by the UN IPCC, estimates that global warming will reach 3.2 degrees celcius by the year 2100.
Klyft makes use of the unique temporal aspect of computational art by developing its expression gradually over the next 132 years. As we come closer to 2154, the space between the two shapes in Klyft will grow smaller to symbolize the closing of the gender gap. As time goes on, however, Klyft also becomes more and more glitched out to represent the projected increases in greenhouse gases and climate catastrophes.
In the end, Klyft’s expression will be heavily corrupted, and the two shapes will have reached each other.
· URL parameters ·
You can add the following parameters to the URL to change the behavior of the piece.
date=<YYYY-MM-DD> — See how Klyft looks on another day. Use the format YYYY-MM-DD.
color=<number> — See the piece in another color scheme. The numbers loop around, so 17 equals 0, 18 equals 1, etc.
resolution=<number> — View the piece in a higher resolution. 1 is normal resolution, 2 is double, etc. No decimals allowed.
image=true — Save the piece as an image.
record=true — Save the piece as a video in WEBM format.
Adding the following URL parameters will show Klyft in double resolution on the day gender equality is achieved according to the WEF:
Adding the following URL parameters will save a video of Klyft in the ‘Stokkendahl Dalgas’ color scheme:
· Interactions ·
Pressing the following keys will trigger functionality as well as add related URL parameters automatically.
Pressing D will increment the date by 1 year.
Pressing C will increment the color index by 1.
Pressing R will toggle between normal and double resolution.
Pressing I will toggle the image URL parameter, which saves the piece as an image. Only works outside of iframe.
Pressing V will toggle the video URL parameter, which saves the piece as a video. Only works outside of iframe.
There are secret key presses as well. Some of them only work outside of iframe.
· Accessibility ·
Klyft is built to support screen readers. It has been tested using MacOS’ VoiceOver, and uses p5.js’ describeElement() to provide screen reader functionality.
If you have any comments (good or bad) on the screen reader integration, don’t hesitate to reach out on my Twitter: @ada_ada_ada_art.
