Rorsch-Cam is a video camera application which captures and translates motion into black-and–white bilateral symmetrical images. It defines motion in terms of the change in color of a given pixel. If the change passes a preset threshold, that pixel will display black. Otherwise, it will remain as white in color.
This work is largely inspired by the Rorschach inkblot test, a psychological test in which white cards printed with inkblots, which have near perfect bilateral symmetry, are given to subjects’ perceptions. The results are recorded and then analyzed using psychological interpretation.
