As We Are: Interactive Art Installation by Matthew Mohr
Created by American artist Matthew Mohr, ‘As We Are’ is a gigantic head-shaped installation that rotates through a database of 3D portraits, including local residents of the Columbus are as well as visitors.
“‘As We Are’ is a fourteen-foot, 3D universal human head made from ribbons of ultra-bright, LED screens. In the back of the neck is a photo booth capable of taking 3D 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.”Art Video & Motion Posted on January 4, 2018
