Unstable Mask

In the sector of digital computing, everything that interferes with communication is eliminated. FaceTime's 'gaze correction' is a digital mask that temporarily overshadows the inevitably unaligned gaze. Our eyes are a nuisance that have to be removed.
Why do we still have eyes? What does our body in quarantine exist for? The human body is facing neglect and isolation.
Unstable Mask entirely overturns the schemes of the immunological and neurological defence of a mask. In order to wear it, physical contact with the Other is inevitable. The memory of a neglected body is returned to the self through the warmth of the Other.
