Seldomly, a movie poster depicts the main character and overall mood of a whole movie all at once. Shinseungback Kimyonghun however, have managed to capture these elements in full with their artistic ‘Portrait’ software.
Date: 15 – 18 May
Location: A Lab
Time: 12.00 – 19.00 hrs
The artwork generated by custom software is presented in a series of portraits which represents identities of movies. Faces are detected in every 24 frames of a movie, after which an average face of all found faces is generated. ‘Portrait’ then compiles all the results into a composite image, reflecting the centric figure(s) and the visual mood of the movie.
