We with capital W refers to the immediate group of us and in this case the group of people that have been present and part of this interactive installation.
We the ultimate selfie machine, an interactive application that detects and captures each viewer to create an animated collage of all the spectators who have viewed the work.
The application is written in c++ and Open Frameworks. Using openCV and machine learning, the software labels each person to avoid capturing the same portrait twice. It also features automatic background removal and a threaded training model for the face recognition.
The application is yet to be installed and fully tested.
