Head Roller, 2010 by Cory Hughart
Head Roller is an interactive work made in the Coding, Hacks & Space class with Nicholas Economos in T.I.M.E. - Digital Arts.
In the work an image of the user’s face is shot by a small camera and imprinted on the rolling ball. The user then controls the rolling of her “head” by making noises, which are picked up by a microphone and processed by the program Cory made using…Processing.
Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions. It is cross platform, easy to get started with lots of tutorials and shared knowledge, and is available for free here: http://processing.org/
