CHAPTER 2

FACETUNING

When applied digitally face tuning is seamless, invisible.

There is a whole cottage industry dedicated to trying to determine when and how much photos of celebritities and on dating profiles have been facetuned. 

What I do is use custom robotics to ask the question, "What happens when this digital process collides with physical matter?" 

"What happens when this digital process becomes physical?" 

What we get is a mess.

What we get is scars.

The result is two portraits in one.

The result is a portrait of tension between who you are and who the algorithms say you should be.

The result is an on canvas battle with A.I. and algorithm. 

A process meant to make use more beautiful defaces us.
