Moving More Than Mice

MouseMiles is a utility / art project (mostly art project) that records the distance that you move your mouse (nothing to install, just open a pop-up window). The program keeps track of the vertical, horizontal, and total distance that the mouse is moved and adds this to the total from other users around the world. For effect, there is a miniature train somewhere that moves the exact distance that we’ve all moved our mice. It’s kind of like a parallel universe except it’s not a universe, it’s just someone’s house.
If a cat were watching me now, he would see only a human and a little box. I see text and graphics. I exchange ideas, learn, laugh, and gaze. Ahh intangibles.
And now I also move tiny trains.
