Multimedia artist Georgie Pinn’s interactive public sculpture, OHCE/ECHO uses live generative animation, high-end facial capture technology and projection-mapped storytelling to look at empathy as well as prejudice and make us aware of our choices and perspectives.
The audience can literally imbed themselves into the artwork as their portraits are captured and manipulated creatively in real time into the continuously changing face projection. They then get to shapeshift by stepping into another’s story.
The giant storytelling device elevates the representation of the everyday person and challenges our own preconceived biases, posing the question of whether machines can teach us to be better humans.
The artwork ECHO was originally created in the gaming software Unity and then developed further into OHCE with over 40,000 portraits from its international tour. The generative software Touchdesigner was used to create an interactive and immersive console interface so that audiences can control the artwork directly.
During Curiocity Brisbane 2022, the artist was on site assisting the public to engage with the artwork 5pm-8pm.
