As shown in my previous blog post I have reached a point where I have successfully created the logo board I was aspiring towards, as well as it being able to react to changes in colours picked up by the webcam. From this I want to extend the project and make it so that the webcam values picked up are not simply just given as a ‘tint’ to the logo for it to appear as a block colour.
From the code shown here although it did take a step towards my final goal of trying to use the values of colour picked up by the webcam to match the colour value with a logo which would be ‘lit up’ in the installation I will present.
After playing with the code written for me by my tutor in an attempt to use the webcam to give me a colour value rather than manually input RGB values I found the example set up I had created gave me this error –
“processing error ** (processing core video:9140): warning **: colorconverter: size 83200 is not a multiple of unit size 80000”
This error had me dumbfounded for a few hours before I made the decision to not progress with trying to take my project to this level, I felt that currently, though I have not achieved the initial goal I’d set for myself in this project the final sketch still achieves what I wanted it to achieve, this being an installation which creates an awareness in audiences of the staggering amount of brands in this world and their impact on society.
From here I plan to move on to testing my project on the screens in Weymouth house for a live audience, this will allow me to observe their reaction and interview them to gauge whether or not they feel the installation has had the effect I had hoped for.
