GRAHAM FINK – DRAWING WITH MY EYES.
Multimedia artist, Graham Fink, has been working with Eye
Tracking technology for the past decade.
He initially designed a piece of software in conjunction with Tobii,
the world leaders in Eye Tracking technology, to create drawings
just by using his eyes.
HOW IT WORKS:
The technology works by shining infra-red light directly into his
eyes. The reflections are recorded by a camera in the eye tracker
through multi-algorithms and filters which allow eye movement to
immediately be translated onto a screen.
Once the process is started the artist moves his eyes around the
screen and the line follows. There are no breaks (even if he blinks)
so the drawing is one continuous line.
