Use your face to control a character
“Eat candy with Blob!” is an interactive installation I created as a result from a one month program at the School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe, in Berlin.
“See or be seen” focused on computer vision and image processing for creative projects and critical discourse. Computer Vision is an area of research centered on how algorithms can extract information from images. This was originally done using still images, later video and now includes 3D data from cameras with 3D sensors.
“Eat candy with Blob!” was my piece for our final exhibition. It brings a character named Blob, that you can control with the movements of your face, using OpenFrameworks. I’ll make the source code available soon.
In the meantime, enjoy seeing adults becoming kids, stealing candy and having fun with them! : )
