This interactive video installation provides the user with an intuitive interface that mimics action-painting. The idea is to re-produce the aesthetic of action-painting both in terms of process and visual outcome.
The user can paint lines of different sizes and colours moving his/her hand on a projected white canvas. The position of the hand relative to the screen is tracked and mapped on the position of the virtual brush. The user can control the size of the line with the amplitude of his/her voice. The size of the brush is simulated according to the user’s gesture. The user can decide which colours to use among red, green and blue by pressing one of the 3 pressure pads provided or clear the screen by pressing a fourth one.
