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.

For online images created by this system, please see http://www.robgon.com/DialastyleImages.aspx

Directions:

  1. Click the Start Button
  2. Position the Webcam
  3. Spin the Wheel
  4. Click the Upload Button

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.

Open Source Components:

  • openFrameworks
  • OpenCV library
  • XDoG: eXtended difference-of-Gaussians flandmark face detector

I would like to thank Jennifer Lim for her help with this installation.
