The Cyber Friends’ project

The Cyber Friends’ project is about our idea of others that we call friends but whom we never saw, smell or felt in real life. We see them through webcam, we chat, we can do everything… but it’s a relation that is often blurred, pixeled and specially that can be deleted or cancelled anytime, not leaving traces, like in a real one.
I want to explore these cyber relations just with cyber shots, almost as mug shots when a cop takes a picture of your face front and profile with a code number and a name, and you’ll become a file that can be easily deleted from the archives. Like any cyber friend. Each one on their side of the glass wall. Do you want to be my cyber friend?
I need to make 200 new cyber friends. Volunteers are needed for this project. Please contact me through FB message.
Here is where I update daily the new Cyber Friends. Be there and follow it!
It will take 5 mins for you to have The Cyber Portrait taken by Gonzalo Bénard and it’s 100% painless:
