Face Lab

A series of projects aiming to explore the outer limits of how we use our face as an interpreter of our environment – or for our fellow humans to interpret what is going on in our minds. A face analysing the emotional state of the carrier, a face that pixelate your real face in real life, a face that allows your digital avatar to enter the physical world, a hat that helps you keeping 1,5 meter distance to your fellow citizens, a face that reflects what’s on your computer screen, a face that is a musical instrument for deeper emotional expressions, a face that blocks eyesight and replace it with a 360° vibration sense, a face that blocks close communication but can listen to people far away and talk back to them.
