Kinect Titty Tracker

Kinect Titty Tracker from Dan Wilcox on Vimeo.

Dan Wilcox (Robot Cowboy), is an artist, composer and engineer currently working towards an MFA in new-media performance arts at Carnegie Mellon University. Dan spent two years as a creative coder at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Linz, prior to which he earned a Masters in Art and Technology from the IT University of Goteborg, Sweden. Dan performs regularly as the cyborg Robot Cowboy, and is an active contributor to open-source arts toolkits like Pure Data and OpenFrameworks.

In late 2010, Dan had a surprise Internet hit with his speed project, Kinect Titty Tracker, which he hacked together in just one evening. In this project, Dan writes, “the computer searches for my manboobs and draws a bra or pasties on top.” Music is played when his manboobs are detected.

Final Wisdom I: Interactive Haptic Poetry Installation

Final Wisdom I (2005) is an interactive installation engaging viewers in a sensory exploration of temporal and spatialized poetry. Participants manipulate imagery, sound and language through their gesture, touch and proximity. The work is engaged through a framework of cameras and sensors that react to heat, position, and capacitance – presenting a shifting environment of reactive media and haptics. Final Wisdom I is the work of artists Hans Breder and John Fillwalk, poetry by critic Donald Kuspit, music by composers Carlos Cuellar Brown and Jesse Allison. This project is produced through the Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts at Ball State University in collaboration with the Institute for Digital Fabrication.
