Blind Self Portrait Drawing Machine

Blind Self Portrait Drawing Machine by Matt Mets and Kyle McDonald
Blind Self Portrait is a collaboration by Matt Mets and Kyle McDonald, installed at NYC Resistor interactive show. Visitors close their eyes and the machine moves their hand to draw a self-portrait. The computer tracks the visitor’s face and generates a drawing based on it. What a fun experience it must be!

Watch a video clip of the machine in action below!

A gallery of blind self portraits here.

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.
