KEYFLEAS

The Keyfleas live on a two-dimensional flatland. They travel as a flock, over key mountains and through aluminum valleys. They avoid touching letterforms, since they suspect that the symbols are of some evil origin. On occasion, a hostile tentacle invades the flatland and disturbs its inhabitants.”

The Keyfleas are really interesting and complex, but also simplistic. They are holograms that live around your keyboard & interact with your typing/actions. They seem to follow a simple set of rules and variables. They are structured around a 2D flat world underneath your keyboard. It connects to Casey’s reading because this whole project is designed around a keyboard and interacts with walls, screen and other dynamics. They key fleas are dynamic and simplistic but could possible become more interactive and intuitive.
