This books is a collection of texts and images that emerged from the Independent Study Group working with the GSpeak System during Wintersession 2011.
I’ve just uploaded the movie.
I took the results of my self portraits drawn by touch and inverted the colors so that they’re black on white. The idea was to create a final piece that can exist outside of the GSpeak environment while (hopefully) still referencing the process used for its creation. Here are two of the final images:

For my final project for the winter session GSpeak workshop, I wrote a basic drawing program that draws a white line following the movement of the user’s hands. Hand gesture determines line’s thickness and the hand’s horizontal position in space determines the line’s transparency. I used the program to draw self-portraits by touch, exploring how the computer might record and represent my experience of touching and being touched. Here’s a process video. I’ll continue to refine the program over the course of the spring semester.

use this code to get your hand.pos.x and hand.pos.y to map correctly:
Hello everyone, I’ve been doing experiments with my basic drawing sketches. The first sketch draws ellipses according to the hands position. I programmed different gripes to change the size of the ellipses: Example: “pointer” = x-small. “daintyPinch” = small. “strongPinch” = medium. “. “twoFingers” = large. “fist” = x-large. Details »
I’ve been able to translate that red ball sketch to something that controls the handles of the curves. In this example the first anchor point moves around but it shouldn’t be too difficult to have one set of gloves control the anchor points based on hand position and the other set of gloves control the control handles.
Added a functionality to the bez sketch giving it a stroke when the user makes a fist with both hands, the stroke is then adjusted in size based on the distance between each hand.
now considering relation with gestures.

I figured out how to solve our random coordinate issue and took it a little further using Jamie’s suggestion to make the points rotate around a diameter.

Hey everyone, tonight my goal is to develop a cursor object so we can more easily track where the hands are in space, I’ll post the code in the google doc when it’s finished.
