For the annual Droga5 Thanksgiving Potluck, a team of designers, creative technologists, and I created an interactive gifbooth. Using a simple arcade-like interface, and a green screen, the gifbooth lets people composite themselves into moving images with multiple elements. Choose a background and foreground gif, press capture and get moving. The images appear on a large monitor and are uploaded to a website where they can be downloaded and shared.

Software was written in C++ with openFrameworks.
