this is the new work i’ve been developing. hope you enjoy it!
it’s called “Espelho Recursivo” (Recursive Mirror).
“Espelho Recursivo” is a work in which the video captured by a webcam is rebuilt in real-time, through multiple composition of old frames that works as “pixels”.
thus, the final result is shown just like a mirror, but under a new perspective: the present composed by fragments of the past.
inspired by Estereoscopia by Andre Parente, the work was writen in C++ using openframeworks and was developed by me.
the algorithm is quite simple: after storing some old frames, you just redraw them in a reduzed size, but with its color tone defined by the original pixel color.
the code will be released soon!
