“Like Me” explores how we share ourselves face to face versus pre-recorded. What type of human interface draws our attention the most? “Like Me” is a live video installation performance designed for the 120 ft by 11 ft video wall at the IAC center in Chelsea, New York, NY. The performance is a likeability contest between a 3D scanned performer and a live performer. The audience votes throughout the performance, controlling the volume of each performers’ voice as they try to win over the audience. In the end, one performer wins, and the other walks away, based off the reaction of the people in the room. The installation was created with high resolution video, OpenFrameworks, Faceshift, auto 3d avatar and Maya.
