Facial Recognition Artwork – Bustin’ Out

An installation for an annual week-long experimental art & architecture event in New Orleans.

Visitors would experience their head projected on a bust, tony-style, but then the face would blend into some notable famous human along with a quote.

JayZ, Einstein, Plato, Sun Ra, etc

(the best was meeting some folks experiencing the work, who happened to do lighting installations for Sun Ra in the 70s )
