For all its sprightly, good-natured energy, your arrow cursor leads a pretty isolated life. At Teleferique's HiddenCam, the familiar click-and-drag context of the cursor is lifted away, revealing a lonely protagonist who darts from place to place, endlessly in search of an elusive destination. Recording actual visitors' mouse movements on Teleferique's homepage, HiddenCam offers a surprisingly intimate, even strangely perverse kinetic screen grab of user personalities and emotions as acted out by their arrow. Some swirl in confusion, others move efficiently from spot to spot, but each of these mouse movies reveals the very private, immediate desire that motivates each soft click.
