About

I created Type Faces as a way to combine typography and portraiture to discuss mixed identity. I want to develop this project to democratize my work and explore today's social, and cultural hybridity. 

With the help of viewers on social media and in person, I want to create an interactive series of 5 portraits that will allow them to collaborate with me by having the option to alter each one through movable shapes, typography, skin tones and other visual cues. This would be a public or gallery installation.

Each physical installation would be a 6 foot mixed media portrait painted on wood panels. The movable parts would be fabricated with wood materials similar to what you might find at interactive spaces for children. 

I would also like to create a digital book and set of post cards that document the portrait alterations by participants that I could then give them to keep and share.

Risks and challenges

I am very confident about fabricating the physical portion of this project. The challenges I face are finding a popular location for people to participate in this art installation.
