GCCC As We Are Interactive Sculpture

"As We Are" Interactive Sculpture

"As We Are" is an interactive installation located in the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH. Working alongside the designer, Matthew Mohr, DCL engineered and produced this truly one-of-a-kind piece that integrates technology and art.

Its structure is a 14-ft high, 24 layer rib of fabricated aluminum with custom contouring Sansi LED modules - totaling 850,000 individual LEDs. Entering the back of the head, you are faced with a 3D photobooth outfitted with 32 cameras and a custom facial recognition software interface made possible with our partners Direct Dimension (3D scanning) and Creosphere (UX design). The images taken are assembled into a flattened texture map - which is then sent to the exterior LED facade.

Matthew Mohr was inspired to show off the diversity of Columbus, OH while also creating a sense of oneness with "As We Are." Combining technology and interaction, the sculpture has been called "the ultimate selfie machine."
