installation that lets one wander through a 3D labyrinth
made from one's own scanned fingerprint.
The fingerprint scanner uses a prism, a macro photographic
lens, and a webcam to capture live video of one's print.
application (with some custom Java bits), running in
presentation mode, captures live video from the scanner
and saves a convolved image to another computer running
the Fingerprint Maze game.
OS X application, written in C++ and OpenGL, picks up
fingerprint files and renders them in 3D. For each dark
pixel it finds in the image, it places a translucent
cube in virtual space.
The labyrinth can be navigated from above, or explored
at ground level.
What we made is something between copy machine art and
top view of scanned fingerprint.
