A comment on the use of digital face-filters.
An installation of videos shown on mobile phones.
A workshop: make your own analogue face-filters.
#Freetheexpression shows a playful research into the oddities of human interaction. In today’s world facial expression can be replaced by emoji’s or digital AR-filters. It seems like emotions become standardised. #freetheexpression is a reaction and a comment towards the standardisation of the face.
Our faces have a very sophisticated set of muscles, unconsciously trained to pass information to others. The minimalistic facial communication becomes visible by placing low-tech materials on specific points of the face. The videos show a diversity of experiments to explore the facial expression in a much broader sense.
