"Designed to record and tell the stories of the local community and beyond, this futuristic invention by Synarcade Audio-Visuals will be an astonishing communal forum of the city at a unique moment of growth and change.
Visitors are invited to approach the work and press a glowing button to make the faces come alive and speak. Then, they can step into a special Video Capture Booth and contribute their own face, voice, and story to become part of the ever-changing Museum.
“Participants can expect a playful and truly wondrous new way to have their say and share their views on the questions that matter to them,” says Mark Bolotin, founder of Synarcade Audio-Visuals and creator of The Museum of Faces.
The Museum of Faces is based on Synarcade Audio-Visuals’ award-winning invention, The Lumiphonic Creature Choir, an eerie mechanical choir that can sing together in unison, beatbox, or recite poetry at the touch of a button. The Lumiphonic Creature Choir has performed to sell-out audiences in Melbourne, Croatia, New York, and at TEDxSydney 2018.
Inspired by the intersection of community engagement, art, technology and social research, the Museum of Faces is family-friendly and wheelchair accessible, welcoming participants from all walks of life.
