Abstract

We present Anabiosis, an interactive pictorial artwork based on our novel paper computing technique called Polychrome Paper Computing. When a viewer touches a butterfly printed on paper surface, the color of the butterfly changes dynamically. The user can also enjoy the flying animations and interactive instructions on the beautiful butterflies. Polychrome Paper Computing is a new color-generating technology which enables dynamic color change without losing thin soft character of paper. Focusing on polychrome printing techniques used in traditional paper works such as Ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world), we have developed a multilayered structure composed of normal inks and functional inks. The technology makes it possible to generate interactive paper works that can utilize both expressions and techniques of paper human has developed.
