The phrase, "What Forces Shape You" is the theme behind the new Star Wars Identities exhibition. Set to open on April 19, 2012, the art show will be held at two locations: The Montreal Science Center and the Telus World of Science in Edmonton.
Star Wars Identities is centered around the inspiration behind the characters within the Star Wars saga. The portraits are digital mosaics composed of various items and materials found within the Star Wars universe that correlate to that specific character's motivation and identity. The designs do not come with an explanation but rather are left open to individual interpretation, bound to incite varying degrees of Fanboy driven arguments.
The use of miniature figures to create the mosaics in Star Wars Identities is derived from the exhibition's close look at what has literally shaped these characters. These portraits are an intriguing new approach towards the much loved space opera.
