Full Face Exposure / Pleno Rostro

Full Face Exposure / Pleno Rostro will be an executable file that will deploy a spiral of totally exposed faces. Within this interactive software, the hood (i.e. the main menu) is the work table. Connections lead from the room to different video sequences, forming a series of fantastic fables. These are rehearsals for intended future films. They are memories contained on the skin of someone else’s face. Faces are generated on faces, the taut skin that has settled on a new face. Totality is elusive by nature and, as a result, it will take place at a crossroads in the digital.

The fantastic as such is a tool that allows him to delve into his own aesthetics and conventions and to drive his influences (the residual, Z movies, popular stories, pulp...) towards experimental and unknown places.

Narrative exposed to the air and placed on other people's skin.
