This installation consists of twelve portraits of us, Nana & Felix. For this piece we produced a questionnaire mimicking the identification methods used by law enforcement agencies worldwide. Twelve participants were asked to answer the questionnaire describing the facial features of the artists. These questionnaires were then turned in to text-based portraits.
By erasing the photograph from the process of identification, we want to underline the highly unreliable factor behind every photograph; the human mind and subjective judgment.
