The Man's Army is a visual narrative for the Burning Man Experience. The installation opens with 100 life size human figures arranged in a 10x10 grid. The project draws the seed of its inspiration from the Terracotta Warriors of China. Each artisan put his face on a statue generating individualism in a sea of conformity.
At a distance, they all look the same but once among them you can see that they are individual. This is achieved with point-cloud scanning and 3D printing. Each figure’s face is made with a scan of a person’s face or a combination of the scans of a group of people.
Each body becomes a canvas, some prearranged for artists, others open for burners to transform. This reflects how we are vandalized, altered, and stretched by the thoughts and intentions of others; draw on them, spray paint them, add a camp necklace...
Technology will be onsite for you to have a image scanned and the chance to have your face on the playa!
