The Royal Society film, facial recognition

Filming John

The Royal Society is making a film about facial recognition.  As part of this project they came to the school to talk to our Principal, John Walton,  for his perspective as a portrait painter. They recorded a discussion between him, a psychologist and a computer scientist to explore what common  ground their respective fields shared.  It proved to be a fascinating debate with surprising results for all three.

Atul preparing to draw

To further explore the topic they then filmed tutor Atul Vohora as he sketched a portrait of the presenter.  He questioned the  nature of perception and tried to verbalise his process in creating a 2 dimensional image from the model in front of him.
