Drink your painting "What is it”? －Mapping your drawing to different kinds of drinks, and then make an Alcoholic beverages for you.
In this project , we want to make a cup of alcohol beverage by mixing the proportionate colors drinks according to the paintings in real time so as to offer a new way to appreciate audiences' painting’s connotation. Different flavors in drinks may present people's different feeling and may offer people totally different experiences to their own paintings.
How did you become interested in it? －I like painting through I was a little child, I want to explore peoples ' feelings when they are drawing, and how different organs’ generate different feelings when facing the same thing. We usually think red is enthusiasm， and most people think apple juice taste enthusiasm and full of energy too, when we change the color in paintings to drinks, how is it taste, will we have the same emotional experience or same feelings? We want to explore it and choose this project.
Who is the audience? fans of art，artist，technologist, visitors of the Art gallery. Bartender.
Function of the processing Part
Processing is used as the input part. There are three functions in Processing.
- Painting System
- Analyze the colors’ values and saturate&brightness levels to Arduino
- Provide data visualization of the painting after audience drawing their painting，and show what their drinks made of
About Painting System
There are three plans to make Painting system (we hope provide more colors and brush size because these kinds of variable can express audience’ own awareness and personality. And we don’t want to make the mapping directly. Anyway, still need to keep it simple and stupid.)
PlanA (Water color painting. the most simple one)
A sketch to draw in watercolor. I have made a fundamental sketch, and need to change the brush to water color version. Using touch screen. I don’t want to add brush size button and Palettes the screen because it usually make drawing difficultly, users will spend time on how to draw it and what these buttons for. So I just provide some specific colors to audience.
PlanB (Water color painting.Use soft screen to reflect different force the user use)
Use a soft fabric and a projector to make up as screen which can changed depth according to user’s force. It can change brush’s size and color according to user’s force. (more color more size and more difficult to develop). Using kinect under the soft screen to detect depth changed.
PlanC （Splash-ink painting）
Creating a lot of colorful pigment balloon on the screen (ballon full of pigment) . use projector to project the screen on the wall. People use darts to shoot the ballon image on the wall(there will be a camera to detect if there is something overlay the ballon image)， the ballon which been shoot will burst and leave a piece of color on the screen.
