QUT - Robotronica


Echo is an immersive installation which explores empathy and connection through face swapping and storytelling.

The installation is a virtual mirror, investigating myopic self-obsessed tendencies. It is a war between empathy and narcissism – who will win? The users' face is captured, high-jacked and then returned to hybridise and control the facial features of others.

How do we feel when someone blinks with our eyes or smiles with our lips?


Echo contains material for mature audiences, no children permitted.
