An attempt to make something with low-fi live video.

The video is used to randomly determine colors and shapes. Once a color is found, it will be tracked in every image of the video. The program will then draw shapes corresponding to that particular color. By mixing colors and a few other parameters, we obtain some kind of painting tool, very unpredictable but certainly interesting.

I made a short video of the thing in action. This capture has been made with a fixed camera and a moving subject. At that time I didn’t realize I could also move the camera itself! (which is the case for above pictures)
