This was a project in development for my senior level drawing course with Iain Baxter& at the University Of Windsor. The project was to create a self portrait.

I have had a recent interest in Max/MSP/Jitter and thought to use the histograph abilities, taken from a live camera. I used 'face detect' from Open.CV to detect a person, which starts the rapid flow of colours as the screen projects the histograph one colour band at a time. The face detects also allows only one person to start the projection, if two or more faces are detected the projection will stop.
