Infractor is an interactive, artistic application that has been developed for a multitouch-table. It is based on the article database of the New York Times. The information can be searched, filtered and read by putting physical objects on the interactive surface.
Infractor is a metaphor for the light and its aberration by prisms. The interactions related to that are used to research, filter and display articles.
The interaction with the table is realized through physical Plexiglas objects. Each object is used differently respective its function.
