Sausage Face

Sing along with the never ending sausage song! Thanks to the magic of face-tracking, the seemingly free-floating holographic Sausageface moves its lips and eyebrows exactly like the visitor’s. The repetitive, almost childish sounding jingle lures you to the place where you suddenly become one with the cheesy singing slice of Extrawurst and realize that what you are looking at is an abstract portrait of yourself. Aren’t we all just some stuffed casings in different shapes and colors?

Sausageface is fun, annoying, catchy, maybe also a subtle critic on ideals of beauty, consumer society and politics, but it’s definitely a “valid form of abstraction,” as Erwin Wurm once said in an Interview.
