Selfies

The mobile has popularized the practice of self-portrait with the irruption of “selfies”.

The Ego-portrait series is an effusion on vanity. The universal beauty of a face rests on the aesthetic canon of the golden number. That is, the proportions between the position of the eyes, the nose and the mouth are based on the value of the number pi (1,618).

To do this, I manipulated my selfie by cutting the left part of the face and shifting it to the right, creating an image corresponding to the ideal ratio. I then retained the characteristic elements of the anatomy of my face. The decorative treatment of the image reinforces the superficiality of the subject, Andy Warhol’s half-tone  and a Voronoi diagram in the background.
