Artist Sergio Albiac has created series of fragmented portraits called You Are Not In The News. These black and white pictures show faces, hidden in the newspaper articles. Created through a generic process, these portraits have a very interesting optical effect, as the faces are better visible if you move further from the picture.

This Sergio Albaic You Are Not In The News project explores the relationship between human personality and media exposure.

Implications - When an artist creates art that relates to the public, such as the featured work of Sergio Albiac, it gains respect from those that agree with the concept. Businesses that use advertising in a similar way and create ads that people can agree with will also gain respect and new consumers.
