Kamarule's 'Facial Codes' is a series of photographs that challenge the viewer to go beyond what meets the eye.

Singapore-based photographer Kamarule explores the viewer’s relationship with 2D still images reproduced on photographic print medium with the Facial Codes series. Circular discs with QR codes are superimposed onto the faces of the people in group photos (school, college, national service, etc), creating a sense of impenetrability.

This series addresses the human nature of classification and tests the lengths that viewers take to interpret and obtain meaning from what they see. QR codes are used to show the viewer there is more than meets the eye, as each code is unique and contains a different message.

This original use of QR codes that results in faceless images could represent an ironic loss of familiarity and identity, despite us living in the age of modern technology often thought to bridge distances.
