in3face (2002)


in3face is an interactive, playble digital portrait. It was my first work as a solo digital/virtual artist after leaving TMWKTM, and remains my most exhibited work (see exhibition history below). I am pleased that code I wrote in 2002, when the web was still relatively young, still runs well in modern browsers.

artist notes

An exploration of the human face. A metaphor for identity. Three faces: mother father son. Identity is blurred, pixellated, inherited and swapped around, informed by both the subject and the viewer. It makes a chimeric sense, but is unpredictable: what one viewer sees another will never. The permutations are as numerous as the identities we present to others, always based on our physical reality, but constantly changing according to situation.
