For this installation, you don't need to go indoors. Six surveillance cameras capture you as you walk by the museum. If you get within 12 feet (as you are warned by signs), you'll be profiled—sensors will scan the "landmarks" of your face, as the artists Juan Pampin and James Coupe describe them, and you'll appear on the video screens in the windows. Text taken from volunteers' Facebook posts (anyone can sign up to donate their status updates) will appear as a story on your image. Creepy, or just where we live now?
