Decanter was a collaborative project with
for the video bar at
VIVO Media Arts.
The installation consisted of a camera tracking a beer tap, and when the beer would be 'decanted' into a glass, a wave of noise would be generated based off the pouring and settling of the beer. We wrote a custom openFrameworks application to do various image recognition algorithms on the video feed, including frame differencing and colour sorting. The oF app would then parse the data and pass it along to another program, a custom Max/MSP app, which would sonicize the data, as well as using Jitter to stitch together the Syphon feed and combine it with some custom visual renderings of the ensuing FFT analysis.
