Kinect + Vertex Displacement Experiments, by Gwen Vanhee
Found this video courtesy of Alt Gestalt. Beyond watching the effects (which are pretty darn cool), I find it incredibly interesting how much the soundtrack influences how I approach this video.
Add in a faster track with more distortion, more percussion… and it would have a totally different feel. But in watching this, the video comes off as playful, an act of exploration and discovery.
I saw this video for the first time a few days ago, and just re-watched it again today. Felt it worth sharing.
Also worth noting that you should check out the notes made on Alt Gestalt. In and of itself also worth sharing.
