Video Painter

As a side project during the course Intro to Programming, Andreas made a Processing sketch that enables anyone to “paint with video”.

The program is written from scratch with a lot of blood, sweat and object-oriented tears. Andreas utilised the controlP5 library by Andreas Schlegel for the GUI, thus enabling the user to control the alpha, resolution and size of the brush.

In the future, Andreas hopes to move Video Painter beyond the screen and into the streets of cities, or to museums and galleries. Inquiries for collaboration are more than welcome.

The short video is made with help from danish director and cinematographer Torben Kjelstrup, who made his face, camera and talent available for Andreas.

The source code is available at Andreas’ Github.
