Facey Thing is a fun and satirical celebration of the coming together of selfie culture and universal surveillance to create hyperreal simulated images of ourselves through the art of play.
As passers-by come into range of the camera, facial tracking will identify their faces and blow them up onscreen as per spy television shows. When individuals become engaged and move closer to the screen, they can interact creatively by virtually painting with their faces.
