Empathetic Topographies






Empathetic Topographies is an interactive installation that uses facial recognition, algorithmic blob detection and computational subtitling to respond to varying levels of interpersonal interaction. Different solo and group interactions cause shifts in topographic pulse, color and brightness values as more faces are detected, and as the distance between faces changes.




Made in collaboration with Tyler Yin, Rosalind Chang, and Alison Jeng.
