Paint Your Face Away workshop

Paint Your Face Away is a drop-in dig­i­tal face paint­ing work­shop by Shin­ji Toya. The devel­op­ment of the dig­i­tal face paint­ing tool for this ses­sion has been inspired by Frank Bowling’s paint­ings. Par­tic­i­pants use the painter to cre­ate their pro­file pic­tures while run­ning a real-time face detec­tion on the image of a face being paint­ed so that at one point the pro­file pic­ture stops being detect­ed by the com­put­er vision through the paint­ing process. In this way, the dig­i­tal paint acts as a type of dis­rup­tive noise for the machine.
