Drag Box 03

Click and drag the box.

As it should be possible to manipulate the characteristics of manipulation’s mapping I created another study where the default 1:1 mapping is changed to 2:1 (the output is half the input) when the box’s position reaches a specific threshold. The result is a feeling of the box encounters resistance when dragged the wrong way past a point, like rubbing soap against the grain of a shark’s skin. It also had the feeling of pulling something through a membrane. I felt compelled to adjust the visuals to abstractly represent de-boning a chunk of meat. One de-boned, the left over form can be dragged with impunity.
