The Museum of Faces



WHEN: 3 Oct 2018 – 14 Oct 2018


The Museum of Faces is a giant interactive installation based on Synarcade Audio-Visuals’ invention: The Lumiphonic Creature Choir, a twelve-headed creature that comes alive and begins to speak.

From October 3rd to October 14th 2018, The Museum of Faces will be based at 107 in Redfern, recording and telling the diverse stories of the local community and beyond.

Approach the Creatures and press a glowing button to make them come alive and speak. Then step into a special Face Capture Booth and watch as your own face, voice, and story become part of the ever-changing Museum!

Designed as a cutting-edge new way of recording and sharing people’s views, The Museum of Faces will be an astonishing communal catalogue of the city at a unique moment of growth and change.

This installation is specifically designed to be engaging, awe-inducing and highly accessible for all ages.

Come and have your say!

Every day will feature a new question, centering on five main themes:
