Searching “Digital Wheel Art”

September 28th, 2010 2 comments

I sometimes search “Digital Wheel Art” in the Internet.

I found a new article I haven’t seen before, although it was posted 2 years back.

My using small movements such as head tilts to change color and movement to draw lines, a disabled person can create art in a way they could not before. Sure, it’s no Van Gogh, but compared to nothing, it may be a catharsis that fully physically capable people may not always realize the value of.

Some comments are:

  • That is pretty awesome, I’m glad to see video games being used in innovative ways to help others.
  • It’s pretty cool that they are doing stuff like this as everyone should be able to express themselves through art in one form or another.
  • It’s always nice to hear ways that can improve the quality of life for sufferers of cerebral palsy and other serious disorders. Just living day today isn’t really enough and finding outlets to help them express themselves is in my opinion just as important as finding ways to extend their lifespans. Though obviously not as important as finding a cure.
  • That’s unbelievably fantastic. How come news agencies can’t carry stories like this, explaining the good that developments in video gaming can create.
  • I’m severely handicapped and was trying to become an artist before I got too weak.
  • Warm fuzzies indeed, major awesome points to YoungHyun Chung.
  • From an artistic perspective, I’d be fascinated if someone became skilled enough to paint pictures¬†they were happy with. It’d provide a unique perspective that I’d certainly love to see.

I am working on similar theme in Pittsburgh. Using interactive digital media for people with disabilities. Not only for fun but has clinical and academic impact, I hope.
