Digital Sand is the digital interpolation of a mesmerizing analogue device, in which users interact with the sand placed on a rotating disc to create hypnotic patterns.

I simulated the same system interpolating trigonometry in openFrameworks.

A GUI provides several options to customize the visuals, playing with velocity, thickness and pattern.
