Face Us 2.0

Project Medium: Installation

Face Us is a serial experiment about people's stereotypes about face. In the Face Us 2.0, we develop a robot which will follow with people's face. We use the limitation of face tracking system(western face is more easy to recognize than Asia face) as a way to do the choreographer. The idea is to challenge and rethink the idea of power of technology, and what is definition of good face.
