crimcam is an interactive projection that takes viewers and turns them into criminals inside cctv footage.
using head tracking and face recognition, each persons identity is concealed by various techniques ( black bars across eyes, face blur, etc ) as seen on tv.

people usually experience seeing their own image either in the photos or video and almost always in a positive and social context. i wanted to bring the viewer into a more sinister and perhaps more confronting environment, to allow them to see themselves in a negative context and to suggest they are not as happy and innocent as they portray themselves to be.

crimcam was built using openframeworks and openCV which makes it possible to perform motion tracking, blob tracking, face detection.

will be posting the source shortly.
