Interactive Installation, Backstory: Expression Mirror
This is a Interactive installation. It was designed by Zachary Lieberman. Its medium is computer, camera, monitor, electronic components, and software (openframeworks (c++), python, keras). It is a part of the department.
In Zachary Lieberman's Expression Mirror, the faces of viewers generate unique animations. Shown here are the data at work in his project. Face-detection software tracks muscle movements at 68 locations on the face. Emotion-recognition software interprets these movements. As you mold you face into different expressions, Lieberman's system builds a database of eyes, noses, and mouths, finds emotional matches among those parts, and generates patterns of abstract lines that behave differently in response to different facial expressions. Together, these elements create dynamic social portraits.
