Artist Matthew Mohr made a 3D universal human head from ribbons of 850,000 ultra-bright LED screens for an installation titled As We Are. At the back of the sculpture, there is a photo booth that takes 3D pictures. Inside, 29 cameras take simultaneous photos of the visitor’s face, which are then stitched together to create a 3D model of the person for display on the large head.

The 14-foot sculpture is on view in the atrium of the Columbus Convention Center in Ohio. ‘As We Are’ aims to address the relationship between self and the representation of self, asking the subject of the portrait to reconsider presence through magnification. You can take a look at the sculpture in action in the video below.
