iPad Light Painting

Art/ Technology

This video blew me away.. wow! It kind of reminded me of my experience at The Museum of the Moving Image last year. This video is about “light painting” and it is incredible how they have developed this way of creating it using the iPad.

Making Future Magic: iPad light painting from mcgarrybowen uk on Vimeo.

Quoted from their video description:
“This film explores playful uses for the increasingly ubiquitous ‘glowing rectangles’ that inhabit the world. We use photographic and animation techniques that were developed to draw moving 3-dimensional typography and objects with an iPad. In dark environments, we play movies on the surface of the iPad that extrude 3-d light forms as they move through the exposure. Multiple exposures with slightly different movies make up the stop-frame animation.”
