about

how do you act if suddenly you wear a mask of someone's else face? who do you become? "familiar stranger” (2018) is a face filter available for instagram, facebook, snapchat and snap camera. When one (or more) face is detected, a virtual mask substitute the user(s) face, it follows the head movements and rotation but hides facial expressions. The mask is a 3D scanned self portrait of the artist, that user(s) are free to wear, experience and share. The video "familiar strangers" (2019) is an ongoing collection of video of users wearing the face filter, being all different from each other yet all similar to each other: familiar strangers. The work investigates the concept of avatar as mask, of identity in a social media context and, even if face recognition is not the latest trend, of surveillance in today’s society.
