Katie Ballinger: Kaleido


    This project uses a custom midi controller to interact with effects on a live video feed displayed on a screen. The primary effect is a kaleidoscope image. One of the sliders controls how many times the video is reflected, and one of the buttons controls whether the video is repeated or mirrored. Another button changes which filter is active and the other slider controls an aspect of that filter. The last button, which is red, records a 10 second video and saves it. Another program opens the files and plays through the saved recordings on a different screen. People are invited to play with the effects and add their image to the looping videos.
