Body Brush – Horace Ip, Young Hay, Alex Tang
A little like the MIT project “Installation” that I blogged in July but more of a preformance/artist tool, Artist Young Hay believes the “body brush” may be embraced by the art community because it creates a unique type of relationship with the machine.
Body Brush is a real-time body-driven immersive environment, which is achieved with the development of a low-cost computer-vision-based motion analysis system using frontal infrared illumination, and an innovative graphic rendering software that maps the body motion gesture-path-energy to the audio-visual attributes. It captures 3D human motion and transforms the motion data into a rich variety of 3D visual forms visualized through a stereo projector, as well as 3D sound and music with a surround sound system.
