Art with the Face and Eyes


Art with Eyes and Face
Recent work in eye tracking and facial expression analysis has enabled new forms of hands-free user interaction with computer applications. There has been particular emphasis on using these mechanisms individually for drawing and other artwork related applications. In this work, we explore the combination of the two modalities and describe a system for hands-free drawing that integrates the use of the eyes and the face as a means for user control. We present a general architecture for incorporating eye tracking and facial expression analysis into a computer application and utilize this architecture in the design and implementation of a drawing application.
