Android Emotions

The human face is constantly reflecting emotional states experienced by the individual. Because of this, expectations towards androids are likely to include similar patterns.

In this experiment, I had to undergo a series of emotive states while being filmed. The most pronounced examples of emotive expressions were selected and modeled onto the face of the android in order to determine how well we are able to communicate such expressions.
