Golan Levin’s notes on computer Vision for Artists

My main takeaway of this reading is that since the beginning of computer interactive art, the computer has been one of its most powerful tools.  The reading goes through a bit of the history of computer vision and interactive art and it mentions that one of the first computer interactive art performance was made using computer vision. Lately, in the reading, it is also mentioned that experts are still working to improve the algorithms to make computer vision more efficient. Hence, this means that computer vision was a cornerstone technique in interactive art and that there are still things to explore in computer vision.

I also found this reading helpful for our project. I learned that Kinect uses the Infrared technique  mention in the reading and that we are going to use detect motion. This reading help me to visualize all the potential techniques that I may use to create a better user experience for my final project
