Silverscreen

A vintage looking camera at an outdoor photography station contain face recognition software that takes a short sequence of images. These are combined with other quirky imagery and the resulting live animations are projected onto a large translucent screen.

Participants were invited to test Andy Warhol's theory that everyone will be famous for 15 minutes at Cheriton Lights by participating in a playful new piece, adding their likeness to appear on a giant silver screen.
