Sparkles from BlipBlip on Vimeo.

In glorious black and white, we have a new digital drawing project from Dominique of blipblip industries. And – well, fireworks just make anything better. The brief:

Sparkle is an interactive drawing project involving professional skater Danny Wainwright
We used a wiimote to track the positions of sparkles attached to a skateboard with its infrared camera and trace lines and shapes through an application made with processing.
This installation is a prototype for digital drawing in public spaces mixing street sports with art.

BLIPBLIP is a “creativity, desing and art” agency based in Barcelona. Lots of other street-inspired projects (and some big names) at their site:
