“Anonimity as an escape.”

Taking elements from Annibale Carraci and Man Ray, this work uses a passage from Homer’s Odyssey to talk about the amount of personal information a social media company could have access to. They are like Polyphemus taking his time to systematically devour all of the travelers caught in the cave, inside of which they wait patiently for their death. The drawing mannequin represents those people who choose not to open or to close their existing social network profiles, in order not to put themselves in danger by sharing their personal information. The featureless man symbolizes the absence of this data online.
