Hand Drawn

Tags: 2011 arts electronic gaming interactive kinect programming

Hand Drawn is an experiment in collective gestural art. Individuals are invited to draw a letter or punctuation mark in space, which is recorded by a Kinect camera. Multiple versions of the same letter are combined, ultimately resulting in a collective font. This will form the basis for animated and 3D-printed letters, as well as a traditional 2D font.

This is part of a larger series of experiments around site-specific, collaborative stories. Hand Drawn focuses on a small interaction, but also on developing a simple toolkit for using the Kinect to capture and combine moments of movement in space.
