Symbionts

Surreal. Face. Swap. Pop. Art.

Call them „surreal pop art“... how would a face swap look like between a camera and it's model?
"Symbionts" replaces real faces with the faces of the apparatuses whose task was to portray them.

“Symbionts” have been created as an ironic-surreal combination of the preoccupation with portraits of human models and the sometimes very human faces of historical cameras (the latter had previously been modelled on my projects “CameraSelfies” and “ColorLimited: ISO”). While “CameraSelfies” attempts on the one hand to set a monument to these quasi-forgotten cameras and on the other to caricature the ongoing selfie trend, “Symbionts” replace real faces with the faces of the apparatuses whose task was to portray them.
