Drifting As Art On Your Iphone?
We all know there's a Zen-like balance of control, chaos, tire smoke and grip in drifting and taming these opposites is an art form all its own. But Drift Sumi-e, a mobile game application, brings a unique perspective on the racing genre and art itself. Here is the official explanation, "Using the aesthetic of the Sumi-e (su-me-eh) art form, a user paints his or her brush line after being presented with a course. As the artist, the user is then asked to skillfully navigate a drift course, observing drift-specific rules and techniques. From there, the canvas comes to life, beautifully materializing before the artist's eyes."
Objectify brought in Calvin Wan, professional motorsports driver, to consult on art direction and lend authenticity to course design. Paired with the U.S. drift scene pioneer was Atrophy Studios, Inc. Atrophy successfully emulated real-world driving physics, emphasizing proper drift mechanics to "achieve a level of detail yet unseen on the platform." So toss those Crayolas, pack-up the Prismacolors and dial up this Apple app.
