New York-based artist Nova Jiang collaborated with Jake Jefferies on an interactive digital installation. The project titled ‘Ideogenetic Machine’ uses a camera to capture participants in real-time and incorporate them into a comic strip as a line drawings. The face-detection software is then used to insert blank speech bubbles into the narrative.

Previous hand-drawn comics are also added in between to fill the comic and produce non-repetitive story lines. The content depicts a hypothetical story based on current news and events. The installation will be displayed at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art in Taichung, Taiwan from 12 October through to 23 December, 2012.
