For my final project, I want to redo my plotter project, once again with ink and brush, but with more compelling content than the binary trees from before. I would like to replace those trees with lines generated from motion capture data. I could make a series of pictures with different colors, each one from a different motion (including ballet dance, martial arts, break-dancing; I know a few people who are wiling to help).

Ideally, each picture would feature a few different colors (with multiple trays of ink), perhaps each one corresponding to a joint whose progressive x and y coordinates will direct the line on the paper. I plan to experiment with which joints are best to draw; it might be different for different motions.

This project will require setting up and using the Kinect and also the Axidraw. So, it will take some time. But I’m very excited about it!
