Princess of parallelograms is a collaborative project between Yannis Flet-Berliac and a student from Le Fresnoy National Studio of Contemporary Arts. They created an interactive sculpture made of a variety of computer vision attributes: a support for anthropomorphic projections, a set of generated virtual masks, or a new form of photographic trap. When visitors stand in front of the device’s webcam, a Deep Convolutional Conditional-GAN Auto-Encoder model applies a filter on their face with virtual flesh, hair, and facial expressions in real-time. In the meantime, an emotion detection model trained on the FER-2013 dataset is running in the background. The system allows the users to actively interact with the installation. So far, the project has been exposed at Le Fresnoy and in Brussels.
