An interactive installation that mirrors the audience's face onto their palms, allowing them to warp the perception of self with hand movements.

Implementation

The installation was realized using Processing and OpenCV to process two real-time camera feeds – one for the face and another one for the palm.

Projection Mapping

The top camera captures the hands' contour and generates a mask for the bottom camera. Thus, the imagery of the audience's face can be projected precisely onto the palm.
