FACE2014 will collect and display one million face images in an ongoing New Media Artwork. Social media is a vital aesthetic layer in this "compositional sequencing" programmed format, which allows members of the community to upload their faces as part of the source images. Artist Peter Shaw and artist/software engineer Matthew Parrott have collaborated with this exhibition, which is available on multiple platforms.
FACE2014 engages the "internet as vehicle" and is accessible both for installation and on pc's and mobile devices at http://face2014.com. The first limited edition gallery installations will be viewable at a.Muse Gallery in San Francisco's Mission District. As an open-source work, the project encourages artists to re-configure the layout of the piece, high-lighting the accessibility and synchronicity of the Post-Information Age cultural landscape.
FACE2014 may be viewed September 11-13. Please call 415.279.6281 for an appointment.
