A video remix of portraits 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 the last Shadow Art Fair (shadowartfair.com) on July 20, 2013. Their portraits were captured on a green screen panel and mixed in real-time with chroma key VJ effects and footage from The Heidelberg Project in Detroit. Each person was able to interact with their own face transforming in unexpected ways as they watched a live feed on a video monitor in the booth. This piece represents edited highlights of what participants saw. The music track titled "Last Shadow" 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".
