Your Big Face


Your Big Face is an interactive projection installation. Using a live camera feed, participants' faces are projected onto the canvas of a giant polygonal 3D face. This combination of the organic and polygon raises questions about the digital representation of self, modern attention spans, and the narcissistic and voyeuristic qualities of modern culture. It is also just really fun.

Technical Details:
Your Big Face is made of coroplast, aka plastic cardboard. This durable, waterproof material is also easily machinable. Cut using either a laser cutter or a CNC router, large panels are folded and fastened together.
