Lötschental masks is an interactive installation that was designed for an exhibition at the Musée art et Collections based in Switzerland. The pieces that were displayed are traditional swiss masks, and they are beautiful, strange and scary at the same time. To emphasize the strangeness of those masks, we decided to give the impression to the viewer that they were watched by the pieces.
The installation consisted of 6 motorized masks that were programmed to constantly face the viewers, thus giving the impression that they were watching them. You can find out more on this blog post. Some video mapping was also developped for the exhibition, by animating the eyes of some masks.
