Fake Food Park @ The NGV

I built two interactive applications for Marti Guixe’s Fake Food Park at The National Gallery of Victoria. The first of which was a touch screen drawing application that incorporated face-tracking and animation. Kids were lead through a series of activities including creating their own fruity face, where fruits and vegetables starting with the same letters as their name would attach to their face while they took a selfie. They were then able to choose from a selection of drawing exercises which output sharable, animated GIFs.

The second application used colour tracking and blob tracking to take a video feed of an arrangement of abstract, colourful shapes and convert it in realtime to representations of real food. Both applications were built with openFrameworks, making extensive use of openCV.
