The face of the EU is a *digital sculpture* byÂ Tiemen RapatiÂ that visualizes the conflict of the european identity; the ambiguous relationship of Europe with its residents. To the outside, Europe cares to look united and whole, but inside Europe no-one feels himself to be â€œeuropeanâ€.
Itâ€™s a collection of 27 points that attract and repel each other (red/white connections), with these relationships gradually changing every second. A skin partially covers the internal hussle, representing europeâ€™s facade to the rest of the world.
The project was created usingÂ processing.
Tiemen Rapati is a Information & Interactive Media Design student at the Arnhem Academy of Arts ArtEZ. Apart from the blog, you can also check out his photos onÂ flickr, or moving pictures on hisÂ vimeo account.
