Pittura, Politico/Sociale, Ritratto, Inchiostro, 229x224cm
this is part of my continuing series of faces; passport style photos where the facial features have been replaced by numbers. The face contains the most information about individual recognition. This information was simply replaced with numbers; just as our identities have effectively been replaced by numbers. The numbers are the country calling codes of the individual’s home country. Social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, passport numbers, zip codes, phone numbers, and more are all used as forms of identification. To steal another’s identity, one need not impersonate that individual, but simply use the victim’s numbers. There is a great irony in that personal information has become so impersonal.
