Face Shift, 2005 © Arthur Elsenaar -

Arthur Elsenaar is a Artifacial expression artist.

Artifacial expression is an art and research project. This project studies what happens to a human face when controlled by a computer. Small and precisely controlled electrical impulses trigger the facial muscles to make expressions a human would never be capable of making themselves.

Both sides of the faces are controlled by the identical algorithms. One of them is just a bit faster than the other one meaning the facial expressions will switch from symmetry to asymmetry forming a facial choreography.
