I will draw your face

What is the role of interpersonal connection in an age that’s too fast for a conversation?

Now more than ever we can easily “connect” with anyone anywhere. But how do we turn “connections” into relationships?

Communication between people feels more shallow than ever. “Friendships” are built around “optimized” posts; flittering moments of a life extracted from the whole.

But can we build a deeper connection using new media?

That is the basic question that inspired I will draw your face.

The project is a collection of portraits of people that follow the page on Instagram. After the portrait is completed I reach out to the subject to share it with them and attempt to build a meaningful connection.

The project will culminate in 100s of these portraits assembled into an interactive installation that asks and, hopefully, answers the basic question.
