WiiPaint Fall 2007


Fall 2007
Quartz Composer+VDMX

During an internship with Vidvox, I began working with Apple's Quartz Composer image software. Vidvox's VDMX VJ software can accept quartz composer patches and also interfaces with a Wii remote. My drawing patch gets the x and y position from the Wiimote, the A and B buttons control the drawing and clearing. The amount of time you stay in one place changes the amount of bleed so it becomes like a spraypaint effect.

The Wiimote is a very interesting piece of technology because it allows for such gestural control, which is lacking in many digital arts expressions. I have set this up in a few live situations and allowed crowd participants to freely interact with it, and it seems like they have a lot of fun playing around with it.

I made a short sample video of the patch within VDMX:
