“As We Are”

Item details

“As We Are” is a fourteen-foot, 3-D universal human head made from ribbons of ultrabright, LED screens. In the back of the neck is a photo booth capable of taking 3-D pictures. Once a visitor has their picture taken, they step out of the booth and their head is displayed on the giant head.
The sculpture addresses the relationship between self and representation of self, asking the subject of the portrait to reconsider presence through magnification. It is intended to provide amusement and evoke larger discussions around the phenomena of social media, diversity, and the power dynamic of public art.
