“Double Game” 1994 Sophie Calle


“During the night of Tuesday, September 20, 1994, I take over the phone booth. I start by dusting and polishing. Two men are watching me . One of them asks , ‘Do you do windows too?’ Am I supposed to inaugurate my smiling task? I choose to postpone it until tomorrow. I don’t answer, for, as you said yourself Paul, men are pigs. Only five minutes after I started, my fears are confirmed. They are taking me for a nutcase. Too bad.” – Double Game, pp.246.

Artificial Facial Expression 2009 Electric Eigen-Portraits from Arthur Elsenaar

This work shows the human face in a state of externally triggered resonance. Eight facial muscles are subjected to a simple on/off stimulation pattern, with a repetition period that varies gradually between 2 seconds and 100 milliseconds. At fast stimulation rates, the external input

looses its precise control of the muscle contractions: resonance patterns appear which are primarily determined by the intrinsic mechanical properties of the facial muscle system. The face thus displays its own mechanical properties on the face itself. A self-portrait of the face, manifested by its eigen-frequencies: an "Eigen-Portrait".
