The Creators Project: Radical Friend

You might know Radical Friend from their works as directors of music videos for Yeasayer and Black Moth Super Rainbow – here you see Julia Grigorian and Kirby McClure in their installation they did for The Creators Project. If you enter the pyramid you can have your face scanned in a seance like experience, the scan will enter an archive of faces scanned in New York, Sao Paulo and so on until at the end all faces will be re-born in a hologram sculpture in Beijing. In London it was placed next to the holy throne of Moritz Waldemeyer, that creates an individual nimbus for everyone who sits on it.
Young artists are obviously very willing to take up religious, spiritual and esoteric references. And they do not shy away from interactive media art, that had a really bad reputation in the last decade. Maybe it’s a revival?
