THE COVER THAT JUDGES YOU

The Cover that judges you.

The Cover that judges you ( 2016 ) is an interactive piece that turns the tables and uses the latest technology to flip this idiom. This cover scanned your face with face recognition software and if you showed any judgement on your face, like smiles, frowns or anger, the lock on the cover would stay locked.
The cover originally was commissioned by the ADCN for the yearly annual of the Art Director club Netherlands, a annual filled with work that was already judged and awarded, so its pointless to have any prejudge.

禁止以貌取人

“禁止以貌取人”是一件交互作品,其创作灵感来源于英语中的一句俗语“不要仅通过书皮来评价一本书”(Don’t judge a book by its cover),而艺术家运用最新科技和当代语言重新解构这句俗语。当你走近这本“书”,“书皮”上方有一个摄像头可扫描并识别观者的表情,当观者表现出对这个“书皮”有任何面部情绪,如微笑、皱眉或生气,这本“书”将被锁住,观者从而无法欣赏其中奥秘。

The book cover took a flight into internet from wired talking about the elegance to the hillarious Mirror article See more articles below.
