Paint Affects is a multi-modal installation that gives the user creative control over a
large virtual canvas and a digital palette that is influenced by his biometric state.
The user interacts with the canvas by gesturing with a pressure sensitive orb,
leaving paint of variable thickness on the canvas.

In the background the system measures the cardiac activity and respiration of the
user which immediately influence the quality of the paint being laid on the canvas.
The result is a unique piece of virtual art that is a permanent representation of the
user's biometric state.
