I started from the assignment to using P5 play, which is supported sprite animation, to make organic visual. I’m fascinated by jelly fish movement that make relaxing feeling whenever people watch. Then I got an idea to make squeeze ball, for relax hand muscle, to control jelly fish. The gesture to control is related to jelly fish movement; the interaction and visual are connected. Player squeezes to make jelly fish swim up to screen, otherwise it will keep fall down.
