We don’t typically work late into the night. It’s not the most productive use of time. The mind tends to wander. And sometimes silliness occurs.
One late night, while waiting for a designer (Katie) to hurry up and finish working on something, we found ourselves huddled around her desk, right next to the photocopier.
Jesse scanned his face, rolled it as the light passed, creating this weirdly creepy, artsy print, which (of course) we instantly had to post on Facebook.
So then we all took turns, laughing and being creeped out by the results, and sharing (and grossing people out) on Facebook.
We wanted to share the experience, but how do you lure people into your office to scan their faces on a copier? Donate to a charity each time they do!
Atomicdust presents ‘Face Off Against Hunger’.
For every person that comes by our office, scans their face on the copier, and lets us post it on Facebook, we’ll donate $5 to St. Louis Food Outreach. Up to $5,000.
And in a couple months, we’ll buy some beer and host a ‘gallery show’ of all the faces we scanned in our office.
So stop by, have fun and help a great St. Louis charity!
And here's a link to the photos on Facebook.
