The interaction with machines made our daily life easier, faster and more efficient. Despite the rapid growth of technology, machines could not yet replace a simple smile, but now we have Face-o-mat. Face-o-mat is Tobias Gutmann's portrait machine that happened to travel all over Europe, Japan and Tanzania. The social portrait-booth was originally made of cardboard found in the trash, but has been upgraded to MDF to better withstand traveling. In 2013 Face-o-mat won gold in the swedish illustration competition 'Kolla!‘ and was selected for the international student award :Output. Face-o-mat was also nominated for the Swiss Design Awards in 2014. www.tobiasgutmann.ch
