Creepy, Electronic 'Make Up' for Future Faces

//

In the world of CGI experts, graphic design and special effects, projecting video on different surfaces is a thing. The bumpier the surface, the more difficult the projection. And what if that bumpy surface is moving around?

Tokyo, Japan-based artist Nobumichi Asai has just the set-up. His Omote system is for the face. He used cameras equipped with real-time face-tracking software and a projector designed to map images onto the contours, ridges and valleys.

Asai has projection-mapped video onto surfaces before, even for major companies such as Subaru. But this is the first time he’s done it on a moving object.

Not only does Omote project make-up onto the model’s face in the video below, it also projects unusual patterns that are at once mesmerizing and creepy.

According to Tech Times, Asai has worked in the theater before and so it’s not too far-fetched to think that he could bring this kind of digital make-up to future stages.
