Polyhead

  • “Polyhead,” which is a compound word created from “polygon” and “head,” I investigated the issue of technology and human behavior. People depend more and more on their digital gadgets and even start to worship them. Moreover, while sharing information, each person becomes a totem who answers others’ requests. Thus, I installed a big screen that detects the faces of audience members and switches them to polygonal models. Watching their Polyhead, audiences can think about their identity as a responsive media totem. For this project, I used Autodesk Maya to design polygonal models and Processing to create a face-detection program.

  • Based on this coordinates, the program calculates relative coordinates of vertex. According to them, black lines, which imply the "Network", connects each Polyhead
  • Here is a part of screenshots automatically saved by the interaction program.
