Mollu Heino: Perceptions

Color changing face profiles, coding Emil Fihlman, 2023

Perceptions is a pair of face profiles that react to the viewer. As the viewer moves in front of the work, the faces react in their own way, with seven different emotions and changing colours. Profiles may turn red or green with envy, they can be melancholic or joyful. It's always a surprise how the profiles react, what kind of a response the viewer will receive.
