Instagram Face Mask is at the moment a photography project that documents the first experiences done with a face filter recently created. In an attempt to accompany the technological evolution of the image and on the follow of the digital expression in the realm of social networks, the work aims to put into question the way we currently see, use and share the face. By rounding the facial features of the portrayed as to substitute them for a visual expression analogous to that of a CGI animation, Instagram Face Mask, on working in favour of an aesthetics of the post-human, functions simultaneously as a mask and as a filter.
