Created for my Thesis Project in the New Media program at Toronto Metropolitan University, ICFWYWM (I Can’t Focus When You’re Watching Me) is an interactive time-based drawing installation. It consists of a two-axis drawing plotter driven by an Arduino microcontroller. A continuous sheet of paper is fed from a box, through the machine, and off the other end.

It was then live streamed to a website where it monitored activity. When someone visited the website, it know it was being observed and began scribbling over the rows of squares that it drew while alone.
