Plato once said: “Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge”. Most of the time we are unaware of these three things as they have been influenced and sculpted by our interactions with surrounded environment. Thus, make us unmindful on how we express emotion to one another. This media installation visualizes human’s emotional expression by transforming human’s faces into Yaak (giant) if the person is in the negative emotion, Pra (prince) if the person has positive mood and Ling (monkey) if the person is in a playful mood.These transformation is done using computer vision, and facial recognition technique and project on the wall as the mirror for people to realize their emotion.
