Expression And Collective Joy – Love is the playful, joyful moments we share. It is the improvised rulemaking and creativity between us. You see me, and I see you, we both exist and we’re laughing together. I make works to encourage these moments – be it between family, friends, or even strangers- in public space, on the internet, through our phones, in person, or solely digital. When we see each other in a piece, we both exist. When we can interact with each other, a whimsical experience can turn profound. I want to encourage the absurd, the ridiculous, the surreal, and the magical. There are new ways to connect with each other, to create contexts that are immensely creative, expressive, and meaningful.

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.

You can make your own! Check out and download our Thingiverse files.

Your Big Face – Illuminus 2014 is made especially possible by the designs of Kongorilla, and the Open Source community.
