This artwork allows the user to experience an augmented reality in which the flow of ribbons and particles can be controlled. It works by capturing a colour from an object (in this case, a green glove and the light from my mobile phone) and then using this object to drag the ribbons around the screen.
I won’t be releasing the full source code for this but I have released the source of the two key elements used in this sketch. These are the colour detection and the 2D Ribbons. In my opinion this is the best way to share code for larger projects. Smaller context specific code snippets are far easier to look through and experiment with than entire projects. And if people want to build the final artwork, stitching together the various pieces and adding their own code is a great learning experience.
