“The key focus of ECHO is to connect strangers and break down prejudice, harnessing empathy through immersive technology and personal narrative.”

Georgie Pinn, Author

ECHO is an interactive installation that collects a diverse range of human stories as it travels internationally. The main goal of the project is to generate empathy and compassion by connecting strangers through an exchange of intimate story-telling and facial identity, utilizing high end facial tracking and touch screen technology to animate, record, and share digital narratives. The immersive, multi-sensory experience takes place in a graffitied photo booth and is guided by an AI Character.
