While the visitor keeps their eyes shut, a moving platform guides a pen in their hand to draw a self-portrait, using computer vision to track their face and generate a line drawing. The result is a machine-aided drawing, a self-portrait you could never draw.

Here we're testing an early version that moves about a half or third the speed of the more recent versions.

"Blind Self Portrait" is a collaboration between Matt Mets and Kyle McDonald, installed for the first time at the NYC Resistor interactive show interactiveshow2012.eventbrite.com/?ref=ecount
