Self-Portraits with a Twist
DeMarco, Frederick
Arts & Activities, v147 n3 p38-39 Apr 2010
This article describes an art activity on self-portraiture inspired by artist Tim Hawkinson. Hawkinson created a sculpture titled "Emoter" in which his face, moved by motors, twisted and contorted based on random signals from a TV. This art activity incorporates technology into the art room, brings the work of practicing artists alive, and is a low-stress way of creating a self-portrait that didn't emphasize realism, but instead valued the fantastic and offbeat.
