In Unknown Face the camera detects the faces of visitors and censors them immediately. The "stolen" faces are compared to a database extracted from the Facebook profiles that gave a "like" to Transitio Mx Festival's page and had a public image in their profile where their front face would appear. The extracted data is used to create new Facebook profiles with information from people who look alike to the visitor, together with the new detected face.
This installation-action aims for a reflection about the total loss of control or caring about the anonymity of identity, which has been transformed from the existence of social networks, particularly Facebook.
