Smile Machine

Interactive Narrative, Programming, 2019

Smile Machine is an interactive experience that uses smile detection to guide a brief narrative, reflecting on the sincerity and implications of the always-happy persona we present in virtual and actual spaces. Built with OpenFrameworks, C++, the graphics are produced using contour finder with exiting images.
