OSCAR
2005 / New media – interactive digital portrait by Catherine Ikam & Louis Fléri
Software developed for this work: shape recognition and artificial intelligence.

“The face that looks at me affirms me”
Emmanuel Lévinas – Dialogue on Thinking-of-the-other

Revisiting the easel portrait through a real-time encounter with a virtual character equipped with artificial intelligence.
Each encounter is different and Oscar’s moods are often varied: we are not looking for technological virtuosity but the emotion that Oscar elicits in us.
