» Blind Self Portrait

Blind Self Portrait

“While the visitor keeps their eyes shut, a moving platform guides a pen in their hand to draw a self-portrait, using computer vision to track their face and generate a line drawing. The result is a machine-aided drawing, a self-portrait you could never draw.”
This is on display in Brooklyn, NY at NYC Resistor, a really interesting hacker / artist collective.

“This video was filmed in Barcelona in August 2011. It shows the first public testing of the Ant Ballet Machine.”
