Our presence in the virtual world is so or more important that our presence in a physical and sensory world. either by choice or by force of circumstances the transition from one world to the other is something that impacts us; that shapes us. this transition can provoke changes so extreme that we can be completely disfigured and fragmented, almost broken into pieces. this work explores and deepens this theme through an object that captures (or disfigures) the face of those who already live (much) more in the virtual world than in a physical world. it is also a look at the rhythm of this transformation, made by the virtual world: the greater the exposure, the faster and greater the disfigurement?
