As architects, we always try to understand human perception of space better.

Olivier Herbez goes even further and wonders how science and art are linked.

His Cognitive Science Master’s Degree shows his expertise and investment in the Portrait Factory project, led in collaboration with the artist Michel Paysant.

The “Portrait Factory” is an interactive workshop taking place at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs for the 2015 FIAC (Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain).

Through the “Eye Tracking” process, Michel Paysant and Olivier Herbez reinterpret the concept of portrait and can make yours live … through eye movement.
