Reduce Speed

Imagine you're in a cave with a butterfly. Now imagine what would happen if light travelled much slower in that cave, moving only about as fast as you, or as slow as a bug, or maybe faster, like the breeze outside ...

That's what I experimented with in Reduce Speed - a virtual environment where you can hear and see what it'd be like if the speed of light were not as incomprehensibly fast as it happens to be in the real world.

Programmed in C and OpenGL, with a few preliminary studies in Processing.
