Georgie Pinn developed an immersive, interactive project that uses facial tracking technology, animation and sound to explore notions of empathy and shared identity. The installation was a virtual mirror, investigating myopic self-obsessed tendencies and used a new emotive language that connected a diverse group of people.
Participants had the option to share their face on Foto Echo's Facebook page.
