On October 3, Architech Labs presented our interactive exhibit at the 10th annual Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. The exhibit was a huge success, with over 1,800 participating.
Once participants photos were processed, we projected their image onto a giant screen.
The goal of the design was to show the mathematical and scientific processes that went into processing each person's face. This is represented through the colour scheme and various animations that took place.
I went through many rounds of sketching different designs to come up with a solution that balance art and the science behind the exhibit.
Once a participants keypoints were mapped out, the morphing process began. Slowing their face combined with others to make up the Face of Toronto.
THE WAITING GAME
While participants waited to see their own face on the big screen, they had the opportunity to learn how the future of facial recognition technology will impact and improve our lives and what role deep learning will play in that space.
In the background, machines were busy using deep learning to analyze the characteristics of the human face and map out their keypoints.
Participants lined up to get their photos taken at the event. Once their photo was captured, they moved to a designated waiting area to view their morphing face.

As well as designing the interface, I also designed the branding to go along with the event which included a logo, posters, and elements of the video.
