Tickets

Free with museum entry

Oscar is an interactive installation that brings together analogue and digital technology to draw your portrait and portraits of other festival-goers. Consisting of drawing desk, paper roll, electronic components and webcam, Oscar takes a digital portrait photo of your face and converts this to analogue information by drawing a portrait on paper using a mechanical pen plotter.

Come along and have your portrait drawn by Oscar and added to the Festival wall of fame. Oscar is created by students Susana Alarcon, Rico Minten and Stela Solar from the Masters of Interaction Design and Electronic Arts, Design Lab, Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning, University of Sydney.
