Data Meditations is  Art, rather than a game.  It is a meditation and a remembrance of those we have lost.  As you watch and meditate on the fish, you may see 'word bubbles' honoring loved ones.

You may want to click on the fish. But the goal of this piece is to engage our minds, instead of our usual interactions.

When you create a fish, it only exists while the piece is running. It is not saved locally.

If you enter your email address, in the last step of creating a fish, your entry will be sent to me (the artist). I will then add it to the data set and update the 'game'.  This may take some time, as it's not an automatic process.  My plan is to email you when your fish has been added.    This feature is a work-in-process. To try it out...

The first iteration of this artwork was installed at Github headquarters during the CODAME Art+Tech Festival in October 2019:

I must thank Maher Sinjary, who helped me improve the designs of  the opening questions and buttons.  His CSS greatly improved what I'd hacked together.
