Paul Prudence, Calliscopes

Interactive, Flash-animated art object that responds to the user’s mouse movements.

“Calliscopes – calliscope is a made up word. Calli as in calligram, the beautiful calligraphic pictograms of mystical Islam. Scope as in Kaleidoscope. An aside: the etymological origin of calli is in the greek kallos meaning beauty and the origin of scope is in the Greek skopeo meaning to look at. These form part of a set of components produced for Flash MX Components : Most Wanted. ” (from the transphormetic.com web site.)
