Vitalino (English)

(Ir para versão em Português)

Vitalino is an installation where visitor is invited to make digital sculptures using finger movements captured by two webcams positioned perpendicularly on a structure with controlled lighting. The sculpture is synthesized by image processing, through an intersection function of fingers silhouettes extrusions captured by each camera. It is drawn using the voxel concept, ie, volumetric pixels. The name of this installation is a reference to the craftsman from Pernambuco, Mestre Vitalino, who once said that in his land it was more important to learn to use hands then head. Use your hands, do not use your head, to model voxels clay, where physical touch does not exist.
