Test Render of Groggy Self Portrait

+ View the piece on Flickr.

Today I finished up a drawing — a bad self portrait. This is the first piece I’ve used as a data source for the new Flow Receiver capture system. It was drawn over a couple days / sessions. As soon as I finished it, I immediately exported the captured data, a 9MB XML file consisting of about 150,000 points.

Then I made the simplest visualization of the data I could. Using openFrameworks and the TinyXML C++ library, I plotted a semi-transparent circle for each point in the data set. You can see the output rendered here:
