El Criollo – Interactive Installation from Hotpixel on Vimeo.

Interactive technology is often celebrated for its ability to make visitors and onlookers into participants. Here, in a show in Mexico, that involvement is literal, as custom software weaves the words and faces of museum visitors into a portrait of the Mexican nation today.

From the creators:

The installation updates portraits, voice messages and drawings from the visitors a large projected map in a room updates the information in real time, this room reflects a modern identity of Mexico based on the collection of ideas from the people.

This installation was build with Openframeworks openframeworks.cc/‚Äč
