https://github.com/artoolkit/jsartoolkit5 is not working. I copied the example and the code. after debugging the screen is small and dark. It does ask for access to my camera when i just put the script into an html text body.
I found some examples of ARToolkit that use the computers Webcam.

A vision has come into my mind of a need to offer visitors a ceremony for connecting to the web space. I am seeing mouse clicking exercises to help initiate the users use of the internet as a ceremonial ground. The exercises can be tailored to mouse users and to touch screen users.

The beauty of web sites is they can be instantly manifested (and destroyed) and constantly changing. The question is what remains, what are the authentic artifacts of a sacred site on the
For the first few days the sites stayed as they were I went through the cycle on multi pal computers and phones. I Thought about Engelbert and bit mapping. The bit mapping process is invisible when we are using it. We just see and feel the mouse that allows us to reach into the machine. Or the touch pad or touch screen. The idea that we can touch the information is interesting. Touch screens seem the most visceral while hiding the mechanics of the connection. I clicked quickly through the sites the first few days. I let them breathe and exist as they are.
I wanted to be in the right frame of mind to build the sites, and so it wasn’t until Thursday 10/5 that they were constructed. It was the fullest night of the full moon. My hope was to use Atom but the FTP additions were not working. I reluctantly tried Dreamweaver. The Dreamweaver interface has improved and it is a pretty sweet coding environment with built in ftp. I created the four sites first. Then the eight then the 16. due to a lack of formatting the numbers were small and stuck together in the upper left corner.
