Portrait Factory, Michel Paysant
The French artist Michel Paysant, known for his research articulated between art and science, created a device called the Portrait Factory. He performs, in the form of performance, series of portraits according to living models by the simple movement of his eyes. Using a technique called Eye Tracking, it allows him to turn his gaze into a pencil drawing on paper. A passionate artist, Michel Paysant has been developing a project in cognitive sciences called DALY for almost fifteen years in which he experimented with all the possibilities of the eye-tool: draw, paint, sculpt, create architectures or compose and interpret music. Supported by two engineers, Olivier Herbez and Jean Paysant, the trio offers us an alloy of art, science, research and debate of ideas.
