Selected for 2020 SYF Art Exhibition

As technology becomes increasingly pervasive in today’s culture, aesthetics have evolved too. Applications developed for us to edit and filter our images, enhance and distort our identities to stand out. However, when relying on these, can we truly offer fresh portrayals of ourselves, or will we all stay the same?


Four self-portraits enhanced, warped and distorted by technological effects on loop, the team questioned how aesthetics and appearances are increasingly impacted by technology. With technology assisting and expediting an increased pursuit of uniqueness, it seems everyone still stays the same.
