Looking outwards 12: Parallaxing

I’ve always been interested in Javascript features on websites so I’m going to try to create a parallax effect type of papercut artwork.

I bring up this example because parallaxing creates an illusion of depth that I think very much enhances the digital experience. (click 0.25x to get the full effect)

As seen here, the artwork is directly interactive with the user’s mouse. I like this because it is a subtle interaction that changes the feeling of the entire webpage.

See the Pen Papercut effect – mouse parallax by Julien Barreira (@JulienBarreira) on CodePen.

Both of these examples were developed with a mixture of html,css, and js. I’d love to see if I can compute this in pure Javascript.
