We just had ArT=Mixx Metamorphisis here at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on 2/4/2017. The ArT=Mixx is a free event where artist and audience meet and engage. We had Djs, art installations, dancers, and other performers. Attendees were encouraged to come in costume, mingle, and connect to the arts.

The evening’s ‘Metamorphosis’ theme is derived from the new exhibit that features a custom-designed installation for the gallery space by the artist that includes a large cocoon-like tubular structure made with yards of handwoven natural dyed silk and bamboo.

In keeping with the ‘Metamorphosis’ theme, I made a magic mirror that would swap faces of those walking by.

The reactions were great. Most people loved it and took video with their phones.
A few people were so shocked that they didn’t want to try it.

The software was adapted from a repo by Marek Kowalski. Here is the original repo. I can’t thank him enough for making it open source. It’s really the best example out there. It uses the following:

  • Python 2.7
  • OpenCV
  • Numpy
  • dlib
  • pygame
  • PyOpenGL
