    Cosmetic Space

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2018)

    London, UK, 9 - 13 July 2018


    Hanna Haaslahti & Tyler Henry



    Cosmetic Space is a public participatory art installation that reconstructs exhibition visitors as 3D avatars and assigns them different roles in a generated virtual 3D community. It enables visitors to instantly model a 3D double of themselves based on 3D facial model reconstruction. The 3D doubles become digital actors in a simulation depicting an unsettling cyclical performance of ritualized social violence. The different roles in the simulation are assigned to the doubles by a story engine developed for the installation.
