myFace: Interactive Art For Those With Faces

myFace is an interactive art piece I've been working on. It's been prototyped on the industrial design department's welcome screen and is now on display to the entrance of Terra Hall. More videos and pictures to come.

My motivation was to create an art piece that evolves and grows with each passing observer. I had also hoped to reveal people's emotional states when they do not have control over how they are perceived - an intrusive concept in this day of editable text messages and emails. This art piece has had a polarizing effect on its observers. One group refuses to step into the space where interaction occurs and the other group can't seem to leave that space. At the same time, this piece imbues the space in front of the screen with a digital memory, allowing observers to know who has passed through the space.
