Blinder explores the relationship between eyes and the human perception of art. It uses machine learning and creative frameworks to understand and manipulate images.
I saw a whole fine art gallery displaying a collection of photos with the eyes crossed out. I was like, I can do that. So I did that.
The general control flow goes like this:
opencvto find the faces, then eyes in the image
An image in debug mode:
Each name is a unique key consisting of the timestamp it was created, the username of the artist that took the picture, and the unique id of the image on Unsplash. This name is used as a key for Blinder’s identification and manipulation pipeline so I found it satisfying to preserve.
Lol no, it’s supposed to draw on their eyes, but the model I’m using doesn’t seem that good. This is good and bad. Good because it adds in some extra randomness that can lead to happy little accidents. Bad cause sometimes it’s drawing in just random places that don’t make sense / look good. May find a better model at some point.
Hi I'm Hamilton and I wrote / built this! I like doing lots of things, but mostly I like to build (and then share those buildings). Some things I'm currently building: art, software, and prose.
