Body Paint

Body Paint is an original interactive program created with Max and Jitter which uses a Kinect 2 to transform a participant’s head, hands, and feet into paintbrushes for drawing colored lines and figures in space. Each session lasts for one minute, following which the patch clears the canvas allowing a new user to take over and begin again.

Participants might attempt to draw representational shapes, or perhaps dance in space and see what patterns emerge from their movements.

The user’s head draws in green, the left hand in magenta, the right hand in red, the left foot in orange, and the right foot in blue.
