A new media exhibit piece designed to push the boundaries of digital identity. This piece was created with spatially augmented reality/projection mapping techniques, using software developed as part of a larger research project.
As a background, this was presented as a final project in a new media art class. A facebook friend request was sent to everyone in the class in order to research their digital identities. Without their knowledge a video of their facebook photos was constructed and a projection mapped mannequin head was used to comment on their photos. The photos are displayed in standard picture frames with a white background image (the photos are not being displayed by a television or active display surface). The talking mannequin head was created by mapping an animated texture onto a digital model of the mannequin head and then calibrating this digital model to the physical model using the software we developed.
