“a human centric interactive art project by Sameh Al Tawil 2018

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.

Technology: Computer, HD digital web cameras,USB3 connections.

Code: written in C++ & Open CV

Power: 800W, 110-240V

Installation Dimensions: LED Display or projection  100 x 80 x 20 cm, accompanying PC computer or laptop is ca. 40 x 25 x 20 cm”
