Waves is a multi-touch interface for VJing (the live performance of visual media). The system allows performers to interact with a range of visual media by manipulating spline curves on an interactive surface. Interaction is highly visible to the audience and as such the contribution of the performer may be understood. Furthermore, the spline curves provide metonymical interaction, and as such give the performer the ability to perceive and directly manipulate the underlying properties of visual media.
