pictorial protection

online mask generator program, 2020

The two buttons on the interface allow you to launch new masks and save them so that they can be printed and mounted by following the instructions given by the pattern which allows everyone to easily make a paper mask. Each time the page is loaded, a new mask is generated from illustrative image banks.  Produced during confinement due to the coronavirus pandemic and in symbolic response to the shortage of protective masks, this online work invites images from digital databases to be taken off the screen by revealing the many landscapes that compose them and that this device allows to see differently; indeed, the mask becomes both a frame and a visor on the outside, able to question our relationship to confinement and the power  images  in the face of the epidemic, if they can offer pictorial protection.
