These two interactive typing based programmes are designed to run side
by side in installation on two Imacs as shown to the right
Each programme calculates and illustrates on screen through a video
clip the amount of typing required to burn off the energy contained
in either a tictac or a peanut respectively.
you reset the programme a piece of text is randomly generated for you
to copy. As you type it out at a steady pace the video of a person consuming
a tictac or peanut plays. The duration of the video in each programme
is equal to the time taken for you to burn off, through typing, the
energy contained in either the tictac or peanut.
1 x tictac = 66 seconds = 8.3kJ
1 x peanut = 98 seconds = 12.3kJ
