A playful inversion of the light-painting phenomenon in slow-exposure photography.
this interactive algorithm records the scene, turning video feed into a morphing animation with a slow anti-exposure: where dark colours are blended over time instead of light.
Dancers become silhouettes, movement becomes paint.
Light-sources and lightly coloured objects take minutes to imprint, completely absent at first, and are instantly erased by any darker shape that comes after.
