Interactive real-time projection uses face-detection software to generate live comic line drawings of people to incorporate directly into the comic strip - brilliance! New York-based artist Nova Jiang collaborated with Jake Jefferies on this interactive digital installation titled ‘Ideogenetic Machine’ which uses a camera to capture participants in real-time. The face-detection software is used to insert blank speech bubbles into the narrative.
Other hand-drawn comics are also added in between to fill the comic and generate unique comics. The content depicts a hypothetical story based on current news and events. The installation will be displayed at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art in Taichung, Taiwan from 12 October through to 23 December, 2012.
