Human centric Interactive Art project

Through an arrangement of 2 cameras or more – the work composes a live-portrait of the visitor from frontal perspectives simultaneously, aligned using face detection technology.

The resulting video is unsettling way, detached from the common laws of symmetry, color differentiation and the perception of depth of the human eye.

In case of several spectators are standing in front of the cameras, a composite portrait of their different facial features develops in real time, creating a hybrid portrait.

the project includes a time aspect that allows the faces blending to take place mixing present and past faces.

Face recognition / tracking is a technique often used by police, military, spyware, intelligence systems and corporate entities to search for and find suspicious or target people.

Therefore the same technology is used in this project to confuse facial identities and emphasize the artificiality and arbitrariness of identification.

IDEMixer

is designed to create face composites with multiple images. based on an intelligent face detection and facial feature extraction technique, you can easily mix up multiple faces into a magic “average face” or generate thousands of synthetic copyright free photo-realistic face by age, gender and ethnicity.
IDEMixer takes advantage of hardware acceleration, the high speed of the rendering engine makes it possible to compute multiple faces at one time and see the final composite in real time. If you have a webcam or any video device, you can quickly capture some headshots as source images. You can store edited faces in a classified Face Library and then simply pick up some faces from there for a new composite. The user interface is cool in looks, streamlined in function, and a joy to work with…
Key features include:

  • Mix 2 to unlimited face images
  • Create “average face” and photo-realistic face composites
  • Intelligent face detection technique
  • Intelligent face feature extraction technique
  • Preview in real time
  • Various effects: Filter, Caption, Image Effects
  • Import/Export 32-bit images with alpha channel
  • Skinnable and multilingual user interface
