Facey Thing is a fun and satirical celebration of the selfie culture and omnipresence of video surveillance. The passers-by's image is reflected on the screen and modified by the computer to become a creative and virtual version of the reality.
Using facial tracking technology, passers-byes are invited to come closer to the screen and interact creatively by virtually painting with their faces.
Originally commissioned with the support of Auckland University of Technology.
