FaceAge is an award-winning multimedia installation created from guided cross-generational encounters.
FaceAge is an immersive three-screen video installation presenting a 56 minute loop of interconnected chapters built around cross-generational encounters featuring younger (18-22) and older (65+) participants studying, describing, and touching one another’s faces. The six chapters – Assumptions, Mask & Deception, Memory, Mortality, What the Face Holds, and Being Seen – reveal dimensions of aging through footage and photos from participants’ lives, and archival home videos.
Enveloping the audience in a sensory-rich environment, FaceAge offers a portal where time slows and shifts, allowing a lingering study of faces rarely afforded in social settings. Viewers enter at any point for any amount of time – each encounter provides its own experience. FaceAge invites and settles audiences; it’s a warm and rich place where empathy can rise and assumptions can melt.
