Human face became one of the most often used objects being in the constant recognition and even tracking mode by computers today. Tracking face means detection and possibly recognition, over time. Machine, when tracking face recognises that it's a face and follows its movement interpreting it on the way of emotions recognition. Why not to reverse the roles? If machines can control our faces, let's control the machine by your face! Using the visual programming language for creating multimedia works - Pure Data (Pd) participants of the workshop held by Photon Foundation from Poland will get familiar with the graphical programming with a result of controlling video playback literally with movement of the face.
