leinwand 2014

leinwand is an interactive video installation which consists of a canvas and spray paint. the viewer is encouraged to spray color onto the canvas, which is then tracked by the software and projected onto. different colors are represented by different animations, patterns, and videos. for the viewer it feels as if they were "painting a video", creating a symbiosis of traditional and contemporary media.

leinwand was created by katharina gruber and me using Processing, and exhibited at schmiede werkschau in september 2014 in hallein, salzburg, austria.
