Our contact with technological apparatuses is increasingly "sweetened" by avataric objects and anthropomorphic and zoomorphic shapes of otherwise extremely powerful machines that track, sort and collect our data. Even when those human-like handles are not present, we subconsciously assume that artificial agents have a sense of reasoning similar to ours. Bloberizator is a device that masks its visitors’ faces. Object murmurs and produces sounds that range from discreet to loud. When we wish to have our portrait "masked" we send it our request by triggering the portrait production mechanism. The blog http://bloberizator.tumblr.com/ hosts a series of images produced in this way.
