cici’s Altering Face:
In this piece the viewer was able to select their birthday and the image of the face would be altered based on positioning the components of the face (eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth) on birthday offset values. The original piece was written in PHP with a mySQL database.. I’ll try to put into a video and link it later… below you can see another try at Data altering art with video.
cici’s NASDAQ Altered Geithner:
In this piece altering the face is based on “volatility” values from the NASDAQ Composite. The video runs with 366 slides(days)… ( it only takes a minute minute)
Each Day’s values come from the all time most volatile High Low for the given day. These values are applied to graphic transformation functions for each component of the face (eye brows, eyes, nose and mouth).
