Talking Heads

Three giant heads speak and sing. Faces of the audience are mapped using 3-D face capture, their mouths animated to put words into their mouths

As dusk falls, three large translucent heads appear. Looking a bit like the giant Easter Island Heads, but each one of these moves, blinks, and seems almost alive - as they are all magically animated by projections.

They show the faces of any audience members who use our quick self-portrait camera - so absolutely anyone can add their likeness and become part of the artwork.

But then as we watch, the heads begin to speak, to tell tales and even sing short fragments of songs as we put words in their mouths - all fully lip-synced.

Hear them speak and sing words they never said...
