Photogram Simulation for SBMA

Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 11.39.51 PMHere are a few screenshots of an interactive app I’m installing for an upcoming exhibition in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. The show is called The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come. I’m trying to create a realistic simulation of a “photogram,” or an image made by placing objects directly over light sensitive paper. Users will use a touch-screen to place and rotate the various objects before “exposing” them to create the finished photogram. The results are starting to look more convincing, although there’s still a bit of work to perfect regarding layering and the simulated perspective shifts. Everything is done in Canvas/Javascript.
