Mesmerizing Morphing Technology changes human face into Digital Art
Mesmerizing Morphing Technology changes human face into Digital Art: Creative art installations, Electronic music festivals, massive advertising campaigns and new-age activists have used ‘projection mapping’ to add artistic expression to their work, set-up visual product interactions & raise issues and awareness using eye-catching attractions.
Projection mapping is essentially a much grander format of how ‘video projectors on a flat screen’ work in an office conference hall. As the terminology suggests, it is a technology that fuses software derived virtual 2D/3D models with real environment and turns physical objects into visual narrations, optical illusions and anything spectacular.
CGI perfectionist Nobumichi Asai has accomplished an incredible feat – using the human face as a digital canvas.
Called ‘Face hacking’, the award winning Japanese artist along with his team of developers have re-imagined the concept of facial motion tracking & 3D projection mapping by applying digitally created designs ranging from skull-like illustrations, Robo-humanoid features and animalistic prints on the surface of human skin, transforming the human face in real-time!
The most spectacular showcase is the robotic facial mechanisms as they brought back memories of the world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
