TADAEX2018 / Faceless

Faceless BY Rafael Ski

“Faceless” is an interactive installation that, despite its dystopian futuristic arrangement, is set in the here-now. The sense of reality we feel when we come into contact with the artist's productions is related not only to the responsive and multisensory aspects of his ingenious computer coding but also to the bother of realizing that there is something more that Ski is saying: something about us to be in the contemporary world. At the facility, dozens of cameras connected to different iron pipes hang in the air and stand out amidst hundreds of meters of colored wires. All you have to do is walk around so that all the cameras look at you automatically and in conjunction, like electronic guard dogs. Always awake, they look closely at any approaching body and continue to follow their movements, whatever directions are taken. Those cameras are like living organisms mimicking each of our actions. In the middle of it all, almost hidden, there is a television that works like a mirror, in which we are surrounded by cameras, but without a face. Eyes, nose and mouth were digitally removed. Identity is lost.
