Empathic Painting Interactive stylization using observed emotional state

Computer scientists from Bath and Boston have developed electronic artwork that changes to match the mood of the person who is looking at it. Your expression is picked up by a webcam, then software analyses your features and changes the artwork accordingly.source

The "empathic painting" - is an interactive painterly rendering whose appearance adapts in real time to reflect the perceived emotional state of the viewer. The empathic painting is an experiment into the feasibility of using high level control parameters (namely, emotional state) to replace the plethora of low-level constraints users must typically set to affect the output of artistic rendering algorithms. The result is a digital canvas capable of smoothly varying its painterly style at approximately 4 frames per second, providing a novel user interactive experience using only commodity hardware.

I have a vague feeling that they use the term art or artistic a bit frivolous, to say not more, but the video that shows the empathic painting in action is quiete amusing. The lady really pulls the facial trigger.
