Here is a beautiful example of what you can do with the openFramwork library.

“This is an off-shoot from a visual performance accompanying the Rambert Dance Company in London. (…)
When the clip starts, you probably won’t recognize a human shape at first, but your eyes and mind will be searching, seeking mental connections between abstract shapes and recognizable patterns, like looking for shapes in clouds. You’ll be questioning what you see, is that him? is he sitting? is he crouching? is he kneeling? until all of a sudden, he’ll be crystal clear. Then you’ll try and keep him in focus, following him as he moves around, tracking each limb, using his motion to construct an image of the parts you can’t see. He’ll fade in and out of clarity.”
