The Surfacing is an artwork from the Altered Ego Series by APOTROPIA: a series of digital video artworks that explores the de-materialization of human identity in the digital world.  

A mask emerges from an aseptic fluid and is reflected in its digital double. Inside, a faceless body wears a mask that struggles to maintain its own configuration, throwing the whole person into an environment whose data disorderly take chaotic pixelated forms, maintaining a memory of the passage of the body and reconfiguring itself as it passes. Like splashes of color, some traces remain impressed on the digital canvas that acts as a background and stage.
