After exploring the idea of documenting movement from a sequential perspective, I created a prototype that explored this more interactively. Using Max MSP, I repurposed an existing patch that uses motion tracking to display movement. When ever there is movement in front of the camera, those specific pixels are displayed. In order to create a more recursive effect with the projected image, I pointed the recording camera at the projection itself. This results in the patch projecting the patch, kind of what happens when you point a a mirror at a mirror. This helps to create a trail of movement, quickly displaying in a slightly delayed manner, a series of projections.
The feedback I recieved in class regarding this specific prototype was positive. It was suggested that I potentially consider developing a whole tool kit of interactive resources for performers to use in the creation of their work. I think that this is a very interesting idea, and would love to develop a whole series of tools in the open source spirit.
