I like how easy it is to control a webcam inside flash. A lot of people have a webcam and the flash plugin so you can easily use it for a project or website.
I already did a few experiments with webcams.
- Fade in- fade out, when you stop moving you will fade out.
- Time for time. Based on the first experiment this is an installation that will only give you time when you give it time. You have to stop moving.
- The third experiment I did used motion detection and connected fading logos to motion.
- For eclectro we started doing DJ-sets using webcams and the Ustream service, I was the first to play.
- A few years ago I made a short video about war. I recorded television with my webcam and changed meaning.
This is experiment 6. The Aphextwinalizer. With this webcam application you can make a screenshot with your face on your favorite record cover. Right now there is just one cover by Aphex Twin. I will post this also on the Eclectro blog and ask readers for other great covers, so I can extend the application.
A screenshot of the application, make your own cover at www.wilbertbaan.nl/aphextwinalizer/, have fun.
Help me to make it better
I’m looking for more great covers, if you know a great one, please let me know by leaving a comment with a hyperlink to the image. The minimal resolution should be 500 pixels width/height. And it should be possible to cut out the face.
