Self-Portrait is an interactive media installation I worked on with Wei-Hao Wang where participants generate self-portraits through the words that they speak. Viewers are prompted to respond to questions asked of them “Tell me a secret,” “Tell me a lie,” etc. As the viewers speak into the microphone fixed to the wooden control panel, their words appear on the screen and become mapped to their face. The more that they share the higher the resolution becomes of their portrait. Once finished, viewers can print their response from a thermal printer in the control panel.
