Interactive Social Pixels

“Build up and visualise your social environment. Feed the system with the people around you and let it elaborate on visually pixilated interaction.”

Interactive Social Pixels is an installation that lets people reflect on social networks from a critical point of view. The installation is formed by a screen-based animation and by a camera that through face recognition, enables people to interact with it.

The faces of the people passing by are saved into the system from time to time and then elaborated by the program. Each time that a new element enters the virtual environment, it interacts with the ones that are already there. In this way, the different faces are melted together, losing the visual trait that characterises them and in the meantime constructing new interesting patterns.
