I just created a Kickstarter project!
I want to create 5 interactive pieces that would allow any of you out there to collaborate with me on my work by enabling the manipulation of some of the shapes, typography, and other visuals in my pieces. Please share and visit the link. Thank you!
About The Project
I created Type Faces as a way to combine typography and portraiture to discuss mixed identity. I want to develop this project to democratize my work and explore today's social, and cultural hybridity.
With the help of viewers on social media and in person, I want to create an interactive series of 5 portraits that will allow them to collaborate with me by having the option to alter each one through movable shapes, typography, skin tones and other visual cues. This would be a public or gallery installation.
Each physical installation would be a 6 foot mixed media portrait painted on wood panels. The movable parts would be fabricated with wood materials similar to what you might find at interactive spaces for children.
I would also like to create a digital book and set of post cards that document the portrait alterations by participants that I could then give them to keep and share.
