When everything’s being automated to save our time (definitely not our money, though), why should the beauty industry stay out of the league?
Students at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna have so unveiled an interactive Beautification machine!
Maya Pindeus and Johanna Pichlbauer featured their make-up robot at the Biennale Internationale Design, Saint-Etienne in France. Visitors placed their faces in front of the machine to get a light face mask, lipstick and eye liner.
The machine assumes all faces look the same, and is programmed with a “numerical formula of aesthetics,” say the creators. Not to be used practically, this machine serves as an eye opener to our convictions about beauty.
“Computers and machines in general are damned to miss out on the beauty that is the human face, in its irregularities, it’s uniqueness. They are programmed to work with the normative and the flawless,” say the creators.
