Dial-A-Style - An Algorithmic Portrait Studio is an interactive video installation that allows visitors to create digital self-portraits in a variety of painterly styles. Through experimentation, viewers will come to understand and appreciate how various styles of painting impact the emotional connection to the artwork.

There are four major styles represented on the wheel:
- Impressionism - in the style of Van Gogh
- Cubism - in the style of Picasso and Braque
- Pointillism - in the style of Chuck Close
- Anime - the Japanese comic style
The wheel can stop in between neighboring styles, which results in a hybrid styled portrait.
