1000 New Faces

A project about our identity hidden by the masks: faces of strangers are imagined and drawn on photos found on instagram, tagged #selfiemask.

Sometimes it happens to know someone, without ever having met him before with his face uncovered.
I am always amazed at how much the face under the mask turns out to be very different from what I had imagined, also because the human brain always tends to complete a face, despite having few elements available.

Now suppose that each person we meet imagines us differently. As a result, in addition to our real face we have others, equally real, that exist only in people's heads, which in turn have 1000 faces that exist only in other people's heads and so on.
