Virtual You Liberty Installation

Master Thesis, Bachelor Thesis, or Practicum

About This Topic

Develop a VR-based art installation that consists of a pedestal, two old shoes on top of it & a head-mounted display next to it. When looking through the HMD the spectator should see a human posing in the form of the Statue of Liberty (recorded in 360° stereo) holding up a burning lighter. The face of the human should be overlaid by a face recorded by a nearby webcam and extracted using state-of-the-art face detection. If possible, the statue should have a glowing aura. Requires good knowledge in computer vision and virtual reality. All hardware components (HMD, 360° stereo camera, etc.) are provided by the workgroup.
