Z Vector Takes Live Kinect Feeds To Create Stunning Video Art
Artist Julius Tuomisto believes that VJs are the next DJs. Just in the same way that a DJ shepherds music lovers through a thoughtful selection of tracks, video artists can guide audiences through live visualizations that respond to music.
He and his Helsinki-based firm Delicode have created a new software platform, called Z Vector, that can take data from a Kinect or the PrimeSense Carmine to create live video feeds and visualizations that rotate around 3D forms and people captured by the camera. It’s a tool for live performances, not for programming.
You can see how it works in this music video he created with the band, Phantom.
