Today i created a new pxn realtime plugin, the fiducializer. It can be a good example how to destroy qualified video materials, but before i start a small tale, i would like to talk about the facts.

What is a fiducial?

fiduciary marker or fiducial is an object used in the field of view of an imaging system which appears in the image produced, for use as a point of reference or a measure. It may be either something placed into or on the imaging subject, or a mark or set of marks in the reticle of an optical instrument.

(from wikipedia)

here is it:

Special signs, looks like amoebas. But the interesting point is the special aesthetics. Really minimal design but somehow really lovely.

There other geeks (i mean artists of course) already involved this little creatures in a creative process, for example Toxi but my point was to involve the markers in a realtime video process.

here is the first result:


i forgot to mention the home base of the fiducial markers :

Has a slight resemblance to the work for Raquel Meyers.

The pop-arty look is interesting; love the graphic quality, especially in the third and fourth images. Were the colors that intense in the original video? Would be interesting to see them alongside the originals.
