# Zaport-Mocap

This project used three moving bodies, in the form of BVH files, and tracks the hand movements of each. Over time, we can see the vertical motion of a person in motion. This project developed out of the idea of creating a drawing based of the movement of a person. The end result is different, though follows a similar process. I think that the aesthetic and conceptual components of the piece are weak, though I learned a lot throughout the process. In that sense, I am glad I was able to continue to develop my skills programming in Processing and Java.

Here is the code that I edited to create this project. The rest of the code can be found here: https://github.com/CreativeInquiry/BVH-Examples/tree/master.
