‘You’ll Never Know What We Really Look Like’ MOCCA Benefit Edition Prints


Douglas Coupland’s 2015 series Deep Face explores Facebook’s recent corporate initiative to identify all faces posted to the website by using facial recognition algorithms — a somewhat intrusive proposition, but one that will be implemented, regardless. Facebook’s proposition is a small taste of the retrograde privacy invasion that will typify much of the near and distant future. DeepFace presents portraits that recall photographs by Thomas Ruff or screen shots by Andy Warhol that have been obscured through scientific camouflage and deflection techniques. The camouflage create images that are neither masks nor generic abstraction. They dually conceal and technologically reveal our identity, representing the state of in-between-ness that pervades the modern mind.
