An interactive snap shots mix collage made of faces, that will change and grow as it will be used over time.
Written description of the idea.
Snap shot images will be uploaded to an array the sketch will use and will get mixed together randomly as the users will hover over the images. Possibly the collage will be projected on a 3D surface.
Options for development:
- the number of collage pieces will match the number of the portrait images in the array and will grow as the array will grow.
- the frame will change randomly every time as the sketch will be reloaded.
- the image pieces will be rendered on top of 3D boxes, and maybe the boxes will move in and out following the movement of the mouse.
- check how the collage would look like with using shapes as triangles and ellipses instead of rectangles.
- adding ombre tint to the image pieces.
- map sound to the mouse placement.
- projecting the sketch on a 3D surface : could be on a draped fabric/ garment, a mask, a morphed body, or on a building that has many square shapes in it’s construction.
How did you become interested in this idea?
I’ve been interested in mixing faces for a while, wondering what will happen in the future when races will cease to exist and everyone will mix with each other.
What is the audience?
Anyone who wants to play with images and would like to be a part of a work that grows over time, it could be kids or adults..
What questions do you have for the class (conceptual or technical)?
Is it engaging?
Do you have idea of how I can improve it, develop it?
Any other works that this reminds you of, any references?
Would you be willing to be my first portraits/snap shots to add in the array of images?
Links to any projects or references that inspired you –
Tony Oursler works with projection
David Szauder project Failed Memories is a series which is dealing with memories and the their corruption over time.
Loranzo Hemmer interactive work. Similarly to the way I was planning to add images to the array from the people who will interact with the sketch, one of Loranzo Hemmer’s works named Voice Array stores the sound visualization of people who interact with the work in an array and displays it continuously.
Adam Ferriss incredible work with processing
in progress sketches that demonstrates any part of the idea.
