Draw me like one of your friends online
Interactive zoom portraiture
Picture this, you join a video chat with someone online and they’re drawing a portrait of you. Only you don’t see them drawing you, you see yourself and their hand over your face followed by the outline of their pen. Your video is their drawing pad. You see their pen following your head and filling in the details of your face. When you move, their pen is redirected. It looks as though they’re gliding their hand over your face, like their hand and your face are together, touching. Yet you’re in different homes. Streets, suburbs, maybe even countries apart brought together by a video chat and a collective trace.
