Kinected Portraits

Kinected Portraits is a series that explores the relationship between computer generated depth information and human perception. The Microsoft Kinect is used to capture the depth information and the associated color image of the subject. A mesh is created from the depth information with densely packed lines representing darker areas and more loosely packed lines for lighter areas.  The mesh lines are traced over the watercolor by hand to give them a delicate, intimate feel. The ‘mesh hatching’ not only provides a shading method similar to ‘cross hatching,’ but also represents the portrait conveyed by computer data. Read about the process here.

Concept Execution

I’ve had this idea in my head for a long time and I finally acted on it. I drew this with watercolor and ball point pen and finished it with a touch of code. I wrote software to create the triangles behind the mouse, then printed it out onto a sheet of paper and then traced the triangles onto the original watercolor drawing.

Watercolor + Ball Point Pen Drawings

When I was off for Thanksgiving break, I could not look at the screen anymore. So I decided to do some drawings. I already gave two of them away without taking proper pictures. But I still have one that I was able to scan.

I was able to scan this one.
