Schemata responds to your facial expressions through a face-tracking device. When enabling the camera, make sure that your browser supports your webcam and that
the face map snaps properly onto your entire face. Schemata can recognize a couple of facial expressions based on movement
detected on corners of the mouth, but also frowning, as well as tilting the head slightly forward and backward. Due to high individuality from reader to reader, Schemata's reactions will differ from one another.
In case the green outlines are continuously jumping
and are not fixing onto your face, please make sure that your face is exposed to direct and steady light and that your computer is positioned on a steady surface. If applicable, please sweep away your fringe and remove your glasses.
Schemata is a typeface that responds interactively and in real time to facial expressions and emotions expressed by
the reader. Its purpose is to draw attention to the reader and to stay in dialogue with them in order to contrast and
highlight the conventional and hierarchical use of static typefaces. In conventional use, authorities, be it author
or designer, choose typefaces and, therefore, pre-contextualize displayed content based on specific characteristic
features of typefaces. They therefore influence and control intuitive processes of content interpretation.
Schemata examines the threshold of the reader and the author and recognizes a range of facial expressions. It reacts
by modifying its shapes using a face-tracking code enabled through the webcam and seeks to open a dialogue on input/output,
interpretation as well as emotionality of typefaces.
Schemata is a display typeface, with a dramatic and exaggerated nature, acting out the multiplicity of reactions and interpretations
within its different forms, presenting words addressing hierarchies, as well as boundaries and ambiguous states of interpretation.
