Expressive art comes in this new Kinect form as users are able to splash digital paint using their hands thanks to the Kinect. The Splash Box is a Kinect program that provides users with a blank mannequin which they can opt to splash paint with in order to create interesting forms of art. This video by David Sweeney showcases the Kinect Splash Box at work. Users have the option to paint with accuracy or to go all out with their blank canvass. Their hand movements dictate the direction and source of the splash paint effect. With this, users can now paint with their emotions can it can be clearly seen thanks to the Kinect Splash Box. Another thing of beauty here is the “rough” and “raw” appeal of the art made using this Kinect program.
The project was constructed using OpenFrameworks, ofxKinect, ofxMSA libs.
