Artist Hsin-Chien Huang has created a moving installation entitled ‘The Moment We Meet.’ Huang uses split-flap displays to showcase a collection of faces that incorporate the different emotions and feelings expressed when people meet for the first time.
A split-flap display is an electromechanical display device that presents changeable letters and numbers. They are typically used in public transport because they are timetable in airports or railway stations to show arrivals and departures. Each flap is controlled to create a new face made up of multiple expressions of different people. To see this kinetic art in motion check out the video below.
