just like the real thing, but on a computer... with video
faceCloth is an exploration of the relationship between real and virtual control. Live video is mapped onto a digital cloth, which reacts to its environment in a realistic fashion. The user selects the desired image and then manipulates the display geometry in order to create rich visual compositions. Check out some stills here.
Elie Zananiri is a traditional stop-motion animator with a keen fascination for computers and micro-controllers. His current interests consist of combining both in the form of interactive video based on historical data which responds to concurrent stimuli.
faceCloth is built with Processing, using the Video and traer.physics libraries.
