Sophie Chen – Project 12 – Proposal

For my final project, I would like to create animations that react to movement and gestures in front of a camera. I study projection design in the school of drama, so I’m really interested in possibilities between a performer and live reactive animations. I hope to create a prototype that can be possibly expanded to a larger scale or used for live performances/installations in the future. I’m not entirely sure if the final visual result will include the camera input of the users or consist of just the animations alone, but I think that’s something I will decide as the animations solidify. Since this project will be receiving its camera input through a webcam, I think it will rely on the viewer to be in front of a solid color background wearing solid color clothing. The actual animation content will be abstract and simple, and may be created through turtle graphics.
