Sorry for the late post! Had issues with making the image follow the pface properly – image kept expanding, with its right x and y axis staying at (0,0).
I am emulating Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), an english writer who made significant contributions to english literature.

This was the patch that I used:
Video lags a little, as Quicktime was recording it at the same time. Usually there will be no visible lag. Hence, to offset this lag, I sped up the video.

Webcam input > pfaces recognition > light sensor > output video
I wanted to tweak the patch, such that if a face went too near the screen, a sound will bang out. However, I could not construct the automated response; otherwise, by mouse-clicking on the toggle button, the sound will ring out.

Will try it again if time allows.
Tryout but incompleted!
Have not completed:
Mirroring the video input
Fullscreen activated using spacebar
Dimming of light when face goes near webcam
At this stage, I was more into exploring max as a software, without a particular aim.
First patch made after numerous references to other sources.
