BOOKFACE invites gallery visitors to pose in a particpatory photo opera - a death-by-technology murder mystery in which the user willfully submits to the machine. The resultant photo series prompts reflection about the relationship between humanity and technology. Photos are catalogued on a blog and assembled into this video.
This installation was part of the LABRARY - an experimental Pop-Up space put together by Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) students from the the Library Test Kitchen, with the help of the Harvard Library and the Library Lab. The LABRARY brings together librarians, students, faculty and community members. We host talks, workshops, discussions, office hours, and we're open to the public for co-working.
