Cursor-Wash

If technology is an extension of our bodies, then the cursor is an extension of our finger(s). We touch a lot of things with our fingers and with our cursor, so if we believe that washing our physical hands is important, then washing our cursor every once in a while might not be a bad idea. The website will display a bar of soap that extends to the end, or near the end, of the page. When the visitor constantly moves their mouse over the soap, it will start to deteriorate and bubble, just like how a bar of soap reacts when we use it. This will be executed with javascript and jquery. I will either make an animation with canvas or processing, a video, or a series of gifs of soap being used and deteriorating. Maybe if our machines feel cleaner they’ll run better and be more confident :) ~
