Skewed Glitchy Portraits
The deFacebook Project Purposely Frames Erroneous Images

By: Gil Haddi (Superstar) Dec 3, 12

Artist Nandan Ghiya manipulates old portraits to looks like glitchy online imagery in his recent deFacebook Project.

If you’ve worked with computers at all, you’ve probably experienced how a slow site that is laden with images can lead to choppy and fragmented pictures. Ghiya recreates these kinds of pictures in his latest collection, using paintings to create an imaginary family portrait using people that have no actual relation to each other. The images are faded and vintage looking but the frames are all askew and pixellated. Even the frames are not square, some have a diagonal step while others have cutouts and disconnected pieces that are individually framed. One even has a ‘download error’ alert in the middle.

The deFacebook Project is a contemporary erroneous portrait series.
