Utilising face filters available on Instagram, Anima manipulates and warps the artist's own image. The work merges and morphs these effects to create distorted portraits; digital daydreams of the self in the post internet age. These abstract portraits, whilst still recognisable achieve a sense of the uncanny, conjuring visions of both beauty and the grotesque. The work uses the AI embedded in video transitions to morph each face together, adding a further layer of digital manipulation.
Anima features filters by: fvckrender, johwska, filipcustic1, felipepantone, andypicci, exitsimulation, ines.alpha, mate.steinforth and allanberger
