In an interdisciplinary online-meeting that we call »digital salon«, we aimed to address the question of why faces matter so much. We approached this issue from different academic, technological and artistic perspectives. The aim was to integrate these different perspectives in an open dialogue with an international group of experts, in order to raise our awareness about the importance of faces at a time when we hide them more than ever, be it in ‘facing‘ other human beings or in ‘facing‘ digital technology.
