My chosen Idea

The idea I am working on is a social experiment to see if people present themselves differently once they are being watched. Using The presentation of self in everyday life by Erving Goffman theory. On the screen is going to be a video of a person from the shoulders up, while there is no one in front of the camera the video is paused, so it looks like a still image of a person. When a face is recognised by the camera it will play the video. The video will play the person reacting to seeing someone. This reaction could be happy, sad, or shocked etc. I am hoping that it will cause people to feel as though they are being watched so that they may change their performance.
