site in development

Artifacial is a long term art/research project started in 1993 by Arthur Elsenaar. It explores the externally controlled human face as a site or medium for artistic expression. Controlling the facial muscles by means of computer controlled electric stimulation has unveiled an unknown expressive potential of the human face.
Artifacial is the home of Electro-Facial Choreography and explores the intimate relationship of the human body and electricity.
