The lovebirds from Krasnodar – Yuri and Elena – got married last year in October, but they didn’t have a proper celebration with family and friends. When Yuri found out from the media about the MegaFaces pavilion, he decided to make a present for his young wife – to celebrate the wedding at the Olympic Games and got in touch with MegaFon representatives. He wanted to see the faces of him and his wife at the façade of the pavilion, but MegaFon decided to organise the whole celebration for Yuri and Anna on St. Valentine’s day.
The visitors of the MegaFon pavilion could actually see the whole process of the preparation, the ceremony itself and the photo shoot. Elena and Yuri got scanned in a special photo booth, and everyone saw their first family portrait on the façade of the pavilion.
“I always wanted to make an enormous surprise for Anna. I could not even imagine that we would be lucky enough to celebrate the wedding right in the centre of the Olympic park, - says a happy husband Yuri. – I really loved the idea to demonstrate 3D faces and I dreamed to see our faces at the façade. But now we are having the real celebration and we will never forget it.”
The MegaFon pavilion at the Olympic park is an interactive unique high-tech construction. Pavilion reminds the Mount Rushmore of the digital age. The pavilion’s façade is a moving wall with 11000 actuators, which can create 3D portraits of 8x6 metres. 170 000 faces of the fans will appear on the façade. The innovative technology belongs to Asif Khan, who has already amazed the world with his unique Coca-Cola beatbox pavilion for London Olympics.
