Faces recorded in The Heidelberg Project Mobile Photo Video Booth, an interactive and collaborative installation between filmmaker Donald Harrison (7cylinders.com) and artist Tyree Guyton (heidelberg.org), as part of the University of Michigan Museum of Art's (umma.umich.edu) Many Voices project. Participants were invited to peer into the booth set-up at Roos Roast (roosroast.com) on June 23, 2013. Using a green screen and chroma key VJ effects mixed with footage from The Heidelberg Project in Detroit, each person watched their face transform unexpectedly in real-time on a video monitor. This piece represents a short, edited sample of what participants might have seen. The music track is provided courtesy of The Auto-Marionettes.
With The Heidelberg Project Mobile Photo Video Booth, Harrison is collecting more than 100 permission-granted video portraits to include in a short video work that will be included in the Many Voices collection at UMMA, inspired by Tyree Guyton's painting titled "Ups and Downs".
Included in the Video (in order of appearance): Tom Rosenbaum, Molly Cleary, Meghan Cleary, Greg Webster, Gerald Rush, Kim Jaffee, Marie Prusinski Toft, Sharad K. Patel, Griffin Johnson
