‘Sharing Faces’ Mirror Matches Your Expression with Distant Person
Art and computer science collide to reflect different people with same expression as the onlooker
Artist Kyle McDonald has created “Sharing Faces,” a mirror that reflects your expression in a different person captured around the world. McDonald, a media artist based in Brooklyn, used a megapixel surveillance camera and custom software to match the face locations of the person looking at the screen. As the person moves, new images are pulled from the database matching the new location, creating a mirror-like image of yourself using the images of others.
