The most neutral depiction of a human face as a versatile object, the paper mask has been our foundation throughout this project; a universal shape which is meant to fit on anyone's face. An emoticon, though opposite to the paper face mask in some ways, has also been it's constant referent; slight variations on the same shape depict different expressions, a generalized emotion which it meant to fit everyone. We go back and forth between de paper mask and it's digital brother, between spatial and flat, moving and still, physical and digital, and explore the potential of and variations on the neutral depiction of a human face.
