Preparing for Izlog Festival and our Saturn3 Performance on 2nd May, 10:00 pm, we are experimenting with face-tracking and real time projections onto our faces.
Yesterday night we made some first tests, using infra-red light and a filter for visible light on the camera, to track the face and its landmarks in real time, while the projection was projected back onto the face, being visible for the human eye, but not for the special camera.
It’s a first idea of how it will be when the robots take over and transform Łukasz Szałankiewicz aka Zenial into one of them during the Saturn3 performance, synthesizing sound depending on his emotions.
Preparing for Izlog festival, we just set up our working space in the gallery: Electronics are spread out, visuals projected onto the walls, the 3D-printer is printing, a lot to do, but a coffee in the sun with everybody is a fantastic break from time to time. 🙂
