tokyo-based artist daito manabe and zachary liberman created ‘face projection’, an artistic digital comprehension of the
human face and expression. ‘face projection’ is an experimentation with the real time generic non-rigid face alignment system,
facetracker, and requires no operator training. the artists employed the entirely intuitive program, coded in C/C++ API,
as the base for registration of facial structure and expressions. the non-rigid computer vision tracks facial realignment in real time.
the ‘face projection’ depicts the facetracker program registering one’s face, then analyzing the composition with algorithms.
manabe and liberman were able to build upon this platform, elaborating the program in such a way
that slightly altered the focus of facial shapes and patterning highlighted through the interaction.
