This is a pretty simple Processing sketch that analyzes the pixel array of a web-cam video feed and randomly populates the screen with shapes which inherit the color of the particular pixel they happen to be over.
It's part of a series of video-distorting sketches that I wrote for the first phase of the Fragmentations project. The second phase involves filming the distorted live output through a series of physically distorting mediums such as curved glass and a variety of translucent fluids.
The Processing sketch files can be downloaded from Github: github.com/yparshina/fragmentations
