Poker Faces, designed and printed 2004 (digital prints wrapped over half-inch-thick particle board mounts and drilled directly into the wall, with binder and binder box)

These 16 figures have all been caught in the act of playing poker. They have been grouped into four categories: artists, celebrities, politicians, and cartoon characters.

The face has long been held to act as a window into one's personality. As such, each of the above figures' faces have been analyzed according to Mike Caro's Book of Tells: The Body Language of Poker and What Your Face Reveals: Chinese Secrets of Face Reading, by Henry B. Lin, in order to determine both short- and long-term predictors of their futures. In the short term, using these references, we can discover what they will do next in their poker games, and in the long term, we can determine how their personalities will shape their fates over the rest of their lives.

The binder jutting out from the wall next to the images contained the text found in the link below:
