New face projection mapping work using Real-Time Face Tracking “Connected Colors” is included within the Intel Corporation experience amazing campaign.
“Connected Colors” which was planned and produced with the technical direction by media artist Nobumichi Asai (WOW), conceptualizes the coexistence of life. The motif is centered on the colors of nature, and is an expression of electric make-up in the form of various colors intermingling and harmonizing. Expressed from beyond the viewpoint of humanity, “Connected Colors” aims to convey the human desire for harmony and coexistence of life on Earth.
This work is a shocking early face mapping work. A buzz of 5 million views was born in a week.
It became the roots of the face mapping series.
This work is the theme of Japanese identity.
While feeling that Japanese are losing confidence, where is Japan 's identity?
What is the universal value that Japan can transmit to the world?
Elements of Japan's identity such as Japanese traditional beauty, future technology, Japanism, etc. were pursued and integrated by members and collaboration members of kuwahara hiroto, Paul Lacroix, and Jin Hasegawa.
Finally, when Android face transforms, grotesque dark mask appears from inside.
It seems that it is a metaphor for a strange anxiety towards the future brought about by technology that continues to evolve at phenomenal speed.
