A Processing sketch for painting with video
As a side project during the course Intro to Programming at CIID, I made a Processing sketch that enables anyone to “paint with video”. The program is written from scratch with a lot of blood, sweat and object-oriented tears.
I utilised the controlP5 library by Andreas Schlegel for the GUI, thus enabling the user to control the alpha, resolution and size of the brush.
In the future, I hope to move Video Painter beyond the screen and into the streets of cities, or to museums and galleries. Inquiries for collaboration are more than welcome.
A short video is made with help from danish director and cinematographer Torben Kjelstrup, who made his face, camera and talent available for me. Watch it here:
