FACES is an interactive installation created by Montreal-based digital art studio Iregular. Using Artificial Intelligence, the piece tracks the facial traits of participants standing in front of a screen, and then unifies and aligns them to create an ever-changing 3D portrait of a single digital being.
FACES is an eerie amalgamation of images from strange dreams. We’ve long dreamt of physically reconnecting with people in the past two years of forced isolation, and we now have the opportunity to make it a reality again. This artwork reminds us of the importance of such connections, by creating a collective human made up from bits and pieces of all participants. After social distancing from our closest friends and family members, FACES allows us to be linked to complete strangers through profound blending of our skins, eyes, mouths, and every other facial feature.
