Ah, puppetry. Perhaps not the most original use of Face OSC, but it was certainly an entertaining one. Given enough time to tweak the values, I definitely could have rigged up quite an expressive marionette. The original plan for this project was to have the puppet change every time the user closed their eyes, so that a new “mask” would greet them every time. Face OSC doesn’t seem to be capable of registering subtle eye movements, however. I then attempted to change puppet states with a sudden head tilt, but this seemed to finicky. In the end, I simply had the program select a random puppet each time the application is launched.
