Hye Yeon Nam - Please Smile (Robotic Installation, 2011)
Interactive installation featuring five skeleton arms, whose hands react in unison based on facial gestures - if you smile and wave ‘hello’, all hands wave back …
"Please smile" is an exhibit involving five robotic skeleton arms that change their gestures depending on a viewer’s facial expressions. Audiences interact with "Please smile" in three different ways.
When no human falls within the view of the camera, the five robotic skeleton arms choose the default position, which is bending their elbows and wrists near the wall. When a human steps within the view of the camera, the arms point at the human and follow his/her movements. Then when someone smiles in front of it, the five arms wave their hands.
