Multidisciplinary artist Laura A Dima is developing artificial skins, using her own face as a starting point. In these screenshots, the artist is wearing a silicone face mask on top of her real face. While she is slowly removing the artificial skin, we see the same face wearing the same make-up underneath.
Click on the play icon on the bottom right side of the screen to see the launch video of the project and the making of the face mold as a recorded performance.
Performance: The plan with this work-in-progress project is to create a series of performances in a public space with a group of people wearing versions of her face, while at the same time producing online content. Algorithms on social media will identify Laura A Dima as being at several locations at the same time, thereby instigating a glitch in the link between identity and so-called “Big Tech”.
