Sweatshoppe – Video Painting

by urban projection on October 25, 2009

Got a mail to a fantastic project going on in New York. I just post the mail here :

Multimedia performers Sweatshoppe have been wheat pasting buildings
with moving images all over New York. Mapping video projections to
LED-lit paint rollers, Sweatshoppe lay their projections on a surface,
paint-stroke by paint stroke. They call new digital performance style
“Video Painting” and have demonstrated the end result here:

SWEATSHOPPE, 4spots, the landing extras from SWEATSHOPPE on Vimeo.

How it works: The software controlling the video was written in Max.
The paint roller does not use any sort of paint, it simply contains
green LEDs. The software tracks the color green and outputs the x y
position which are sent to drawing commands and the strokes are
textured with video.

Sweatshoppe is video artists Bruno Levy and Blake Shaw. They plan on
eventually releasing the software, but only after it is much more
refined, buffed up with features and is user-friendly.
