Out of countenance is a dialogue between two faces, deformed and transformed by a digital process into something strange, obsolete. The facial expressions are exaggerated and amplified, drew in a 3-Dimensional space, bringing the common feeling of expression in a different and distorted perception. The human face as we know loose its physiognomy, allowing the other face to overlap, mixing, fusing together and turning into a digital creature, a representation of the human in the digital era.
