Digital action painting is an installation piece that uses motion sensors to draw with body movements.
The retrieved data of body movements such as the the position of the body, the amount of hand rotations and the speed of hand movements is applied to the parameter of the ink's "movement".
By digitally expressing the method of action painting made famous by Jackson Pollock, we can now visualize the process of painting.
Also, by projecting the painting onto walls or desks, it is possible to use a variety of objects and places as canvases. There are different styles of paintings, which are based on various genres such as sand art and ink-wash painting. Every style uses different parameters for the change in ink's movement, which is comparable to using different pens or brushes.
Devices such as Microsoft Kinect and Leap Motion is used as motion sensors. The outcome changes depending on the different sensors and therefore the possibilities are endless.
