Face Swap is an installation that absurdly recontextualizes the viewer. Using a face detection algorithm, Face Swap isolates the user's face from a live video feed and places it in another visual environment. The software matches the colors of the face to its new environment so the replacement is as seamless as possible. Simply by standing in front of a video camera, the viewer can see his or her disembodied face on another person's body in a photograph or video.
The Face Swap software also gives the user the ability to print his or her recontextualized face by the press of a button. The ability to upload a photos to a website is also possible.
