The Make Out Installation by Rafael Lozano-HemmerJuxtapoz // Saturday, 31 Dec 2011
In thinking that a lot of people will be looking for a kiss tonight, Canadian-based artist, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer created the interactive installation piece, Make Out, featuring thousands of internet videos of couples looking at each other. As soon as someone stands in front of the display his or her silhouette is shown and all the couples within it begin to kiss. "The massive array of make-out sessions continues for as long as someone is in front of the work, --as he or she moves away all the kissing ends."
As DesignBoom notes, "the default of couples is 50% woman-woman, 30% man-man and 20% woman-man, a statistically accurate representation of what can be found on the Internet."
The installation is on view at the Design Museum Holon in Holon, Israel through March 2012.
