Update: Face-o-mat did travel, so also check out the new video, "Face-o-mat travels the world": vimeo.com/79961180
The social machine out of cardboard creates a humorous interactive experience. It’s an analogue portrait machine with a photo booth principle. The backend of Face-o-mat is covered with reference images to create a facelift. Through the facelift, one can be drawn as an animal hybrid or one can choose to simply get a really nice portrait.
This video shows a summery of Face-o-mat's tour during Stockholm's guerrilla design week 2013.
Face-o-mat is portable and plans to travel different cities, to make people happy. Furthermore, it is possible to change the facelift subject depending on the context, but it has to remain witty, socially critical and fun.
The launch of the gallery was a real big step out of the online, and into the offline world. Some may say it was a ridiculous thing to do in the midst of a recession, but because our focus is going to be on interaction and affordability, as well as accessible art, we believe we have something new to offer. So far, the enthusiasm and interest has been huge. Noma’s work has literally been flying off the walls and we’ve branched into selling his books as well. Gallery 33 is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11am - 6pm.
The Design Council has been working with the Arts & Humanities Research Council to measure the value that design thinking brings to small businesses.
What we found is that design thinking does so much more than just make products look nicer or work better, it improves the way a business operates.
Our research found that not only can design thinking increase the range of products a business develops, but it can also lead to more inspiring workplaces, happier staff, better service and, as a result, greater customer satisfaction.
