In most cases, visual art is static. Examples would
be paintings, sculpture and photographs. Beyond static
art there is dynamic art. In dynamic art, we strive
to have our artwork change over time and respond to
different kinds of input.
We created a dynamic artwork, to be displayed on the
big screen in the hall.
Our artwork is dynamic in two ways:
People can "paint" by moving around in front of the screen. A camera will capture their
movements, which will be translated to a colourful path using one of three possible brushes.
When the camera registers no movement, the painted "path" fades to blue. To attract
attention, a colourful spotlight moves along the faded path
