Average Face Mirror BY Sarah Howorka

This mirror displays an average of all the faces it has ever seen. What can we learn about the previous viewers, or about diversity in terms of gender, age, or race, by looking at our collective average face? If a face is detected in the webcam feed, it gets added to the computed average face. The longer the viewer looks into it, the bigger of an impact their face has on the resulting portrait, which is computed by normalizing and averaging the viewers’ faces using open Frameworks (C++) and an open source face tracking software.
