Two friends can stick their heads into the facebox and puzzle their faces together to visually become one
with the help of a magic mirror and clever lighting. The experience is supported by psychedelic acoustic
The Facebox is a small 60cm x 60cm x 50cm box. Two people stick their head inside and morph into
each other and become one. With the help of a magic mirror and tricky lighting the people can puzzle their faces together, iE you see your face with the other one ́s mouth, or viceversa. The sounds add to the psychedellic experience, playing with live soundeffects and loopings.
For comments and a picture:
In a time of people trying to connect digitally this is an analogue, but very direct way. Face to face in a small box people not only merge visually but also start breathing themselves.
There is even a camera which sends a live-feed to the outside world (directly to the outside of the box, or also to somewhere else, where people can voyer what ́s happening inside.
This box exists since the FUSION-Festival 2005 (where it was still called Fusion / also i did a big version there). I took it to the NOWHERE, where it got "a bit" destroyed (mostly by the sand). I´d love to revive it with a fresh mirror and better lightings, a camera and a display to show the outside what is happening inside....
I still have to work out the acoustic part, installing my own developed audiosoftware to the raspi to timetrigger record, loop and augment the sounds from the inside with real time audioeffects.
Alternative plan: Well, the big dream is to make it big scale.
There is also the possibility to do this Installation in full-body-size;
I ́ve bought three 150cm x 250cm spymirrors out of glass (yes, a complete wall!). If you are interested in this dimension, it could become a really big blasting installtion, but the glass would need to be secured (250€ per piece) and also transport costs would be high, as they each mirror weights about 100kg and is fragile. -> but really nice effects possible: https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-ApLoM-gko
Also the lighting plays a big role - in that size I would need at least two pin spots and two LED-stripes, but more is óf course more. (80-800€); cam 50€; Raspi etc 60-150€
The mirror would need some wooden framing and a preferably dark space/tent/night around it.
yes, if it´s the box it´s easy, if its the big version more.
2 sqare metres (for the box); 4-10m^2 for the Big Version
I could need a nerd to program the arduino-LED control and also help with installing the audiotechnique.
