No Face Detected

No Face Detected is a two-part series: A Digital Lie and Fantasy in Reality. The series focuses on the morphed self-representation of two differing generations within the social media platform Instagram. It demonstrates how facial images are transformed with the use of filters in order to meet the beauty standard of looking perfect as well as the imperative to be accepted online. As filter technology advances their continued use becomes normalised, even expected. A Digital Lie demonstrates the truth behind filters and how digital imagery is defining facial features online. Fantasy in Reality portrays what these filters would look like in real life. It questions whether filters are having a negative impact on identity and self-confidence. No Face Detected invites you to step away from the screen. Imagine what these filters would look like in the ‘real’ world!
