'A Dangerous Figure' - Alex Augustus

Primary tabs

A Dangerous Figure is a Facebook app, an installation at Somerset House, a Graphic Novel, and set of urban interventions. Young unemployed people living in the UK enter their details into an online form and upload an image of their face. These faces and vital statistics were merged to form the archetypal unemployed young person, and resulted in a sculptural installation in Somerset House.

 

The project has been reported by Frieze Magazine and Timeout Magazine in 2013. Also, O2 has part-funded and promoted Alex Augustus's project under The Bite Back Movement name.
