I am so puzzled by what this is? I love it, but confused? Is it a screen or two pictures joined?

It's an art installation with LED lights and faces of local residents. There are 2 walls on each side of this reflection pool but one was out when I was there. It flows water out of the mouth sometimes and there is a fountain on the sides of the face boxes. Crown Fountain in Chicago

Thank you! It was a really unique place-

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Chicago at Millennium Park. There are two adjacent walls with faces called the Crown Fountins.
Time
This was probably about 9pm in the night.
Lighting
I was trying ti get as much reflection as possible in the shallow pool. So lighting and angle played a big role in my composition.
Equipment
I used a Nikon D5200 with a Tokina 11-16mm. A mephoto tripod and standard wired Nikon shutter release.
Inspiration
I saw this place in a night photography group I belong to and when my wife had to go to Chicago for training I tagged along. I really wanted reflections to really fill the frame and when I saw the leading lines to the face wall I knew I wanted this composition.
Editing
Yes Lightroom edits of exposure, contrast and vibrancy. I had to brush down the wall and lower the highlights and exposure.
In my camera bag
Nikon D750, Nikon 14-24mm f2.8, Nikon 50mm f1.4, Sigma 120-400mm, mephoto tripod, Nikon wired remote release, various ND and GND fiters, cleaning kit, candy, extra batteries, several flash lights and all tucked into Lowpro backpack.
Feedback
Find the angle for the best reflections and watch the exposure on certain areas like the wall so you do not expose low or higher than you can edit without having problems. As I explained I had to brush the face wall and lower the highlights & exposure because I chose to have the rest of the photo in proper exposure. Most of all experiment and have fun!
