You’re Ugly borrows ideas from the classic childhood game Wooly Willy as well as good old fashioned Sharpie on a public flyer to present it’s viewer with an opportunity to demonstrate their level of creativity on an exciting medium, your face.  Combining ad-hoc electronics, and open source computer programs, You’re Ugly uses a photography station to take timed photographs of willing participants, and projects them on a wall where viewers can graffiti and deface the portrait using an electronic Sharpie comprised of a Nintendo Wiimote and Infrared LED Pen.  Images will be on a continuous loop throughout the duration of the project, and then archived online so participants may have a record of their image.
