On February 7th, the Sochi Olympic Park entrance will be host to a gigantic 26' 3D installation, featuring the faces of attendees to the 2014 Winter Games.
The giant art piece will be like a virtual Mount Rushmore, that will display the faces of people who have their photos snapped at a photo booth nearby, provided by MegaFon, a telecommunications company and partner of the Olympics.
The installation that will reveal the "Faces of Sochi" was put together by British architect Asif Khan and Swiss company iart. The wall will feature over 150,000 faces and visitors who want to make sure they see their place on this interactive Olympic wall can visit MegaFon's website. In addition to this, attendees will receive a 20-second video of their face being displayed on the wall.
