Face and Code

Soy Cámara online

New technologies and the social media networks are producing a new iconography of the face. In the field of research, software is being created that recognises the identity of the emotions. In the field of social practices, the face is the centre of actions such as a selfie or of apps allowing the masking and changing of faces. This renewed iconography is inscribed in a long tradition of studies of the face that have aimed to measure it and make it speak. From physiognomy to digital biometrics, from the correct representation of passions to the monitoring of spectators, passing through the grimace as rebellion, the face has a history made of images.
