“Marky” facial recognition and distortion webcam


For our project, we will be using the Marky webcam (discovered by Jason) to experiment with facial recognition and distorted imagery.  Every computer will have the interface up, and will be reflecting the viewer in a way that makes him/her feel as though the computer were a sentient being that is capable of not only being watched, but of reciprocating the gaze.  We strive for a sense of intimacy between human and machine rather than the Orwellian concept of surveillance.
