ICLC 2019 - #4 International Conference on Live Coding

Live coding refers to the creation and modification of algorithms with a creative purpose in real time often in the presence of a physical or virtual audience. The community is diverse and seeks to engage in a wide cross-section of artistic practices including but not limited to music, audiovisual creation, performance, robotics, dance, scientific research and education.

This interactive video-installation Works on how we experiment and perceive the smile. Lien-Chen Wang searches the word “smile” on Google in order to collect facial expressions captured in all kind of moments. The outcome is a bunch of virtual images that have undergone an alienation process.

This installation enables us to think about the mental process involved in an emotional response such as smiling. Behind these smiles, we
