Face It! is a protest tool that operates at the interface between analog and digital public space. While street protests are almost immediately shared on social media platforms, fewer transmissions of digital protests appear on the street.
On a website, users can participate remotely by taking a selfie in solidarity.The uploaded selfie is converted into a sketch and
drawn by a robot on the asphalt in oversized format.
In addition to present protestors, physically absent supporters
can make a statement too.
Photos of the drawings are sent back to the digital space via Twitter and Instagram to close the circle.
The main idea behind the concept is that protest remains visible in digital space and real life even after the date of the actual happening.
