I’m doing some R&D on a project where I’ll be helping some dancers become ‘feral’, letting their animal spirits out using some digital trickery and projection mapping.
This is a fun step in my exploration – I’m using the excellent OpenCV library in Processing to recognise faces in a webcam video (the red box) and replace the faces with a super terrible “wolf mask”. 🙂 The end result is going to look a lot better than this – what’s exciting here is that it works at all. Can you believe real time facial recognition is possible on a tablet PC? We live in the future!
