Looking at you looking at me

‘Facet’ is a digital mirror projection made up of different photographs that are reflected onto a composite image. Visitors to the exhibition stand in the work and a photograph is taken of them as the computer recognizes a face. Their features are then added to the composite face in the projection. A kind of digital skin graft, fragments of other people’s faces are overlaid on our own.

New person

We peer then into this new ‘person’ looking for signs of ourselves, our features. If we recognize something, we are also confronted with our own dismemberment, and fracturability of our own representation.
