Masked Reality consists of a real-time video installation in which the users face is recognized and overlaid with traditional mask from Southern India:
"In the interactive piece, an audience’s face is transformed in real-time into faces of Kathakali, a female form and Theyyam, a male form (both dances of Southern India), highlighting the fluidity of identity as every individual sees themselves in the light of a female and male form." (1)
The masks are generated using machine learning techniques. Chosen 2D output images where further modeled into 3D form and printed displayed along the video installation.
