The incessant need to share breathtaking self-portraits on popular mobile photo services like Instagram and Snapchat has often proved to be dangerous and, in some cases, even deadly. Fortunately, that will not be the case for those using a new art installation in Columbus, Ohio, which transforms an ordinary phone selfie into a 14-feet-high 3D sculpture, which can be admired by all.

As We Are, an interactive installation by artist and Columbus College of Art and Design professor Matthew Mohr, is the closest some of us will get to having our faces plastered on a billboard for everyone to see. Via a program, the faces of participants are projected onto 24 horizontal ribbons of LED screens arranged to form the shape of a head. The enormous installation stands 14 feet high — an engaging and thrilling larger-than-life public art experience that addresses “”the relationship between self and representation of self, asking the subject of the portrait to reconsider presence through magnification.”

A unique interactive installation has been unveiled in Columbus, Ohio that enables visitors to create a gigantic digital sculpture of their own heads. Created by Design Communications Limited along with local artist Matthew Mohr and The Greater Columbus Center, “As We Are”, utilizes a 32-camera 3D photo booth and 850,000 individual LEDs in order to generate a dramatic likeness of guests that get their images taken inside it. Using custom facial recognition software and a process called photogrammetry, synchronized cameras inside the structure capture a person’s portrait and custom software stitches the separate photos back together to display across the surface of the sculpture.
