Hold My Gaze / Andrew Loh

Hold My Gaze is an interactive AR installation that conveys the consequences of forest fires, which have resulted in a smoky haze blanketing the Southeast Asia region for months. You are invited to sit in front of the iPad and hold your gaze into the front camera. With face mapping technology, you will see yourself masked with a beautiful rainforest. As soon as you look away, the mask will change into a burning forest - which could be caused by looking away or ignoring the effects of climate change. The installation was created using iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and AR face mapping technology.
