The Facetune and the Eternal Search for Perfection

It is absolutely undeniable that today, more than ever, we are bombarded with images of extreme perfection. Perfection suggests the absence of defects, implying the humanly impossible condition to reach a level of utopian excellence. The point is that in this field everything is a matter of perspective – and perfection has several.

Apps to make people look better in photography are commonly used when it comes to social networking. This appreciation of the beautiful (and false…?) mirrors precisely the influence that this age of appearances has on each of us. This is exactly where Facetune (application of the moment that theoretically makes selfies prettier by perfecting them and eliminating “defects”) takes on the leading role. Is he the “perfect selfie editor”? Or the creator of the exemplary lie?

How much does our virtual image reflect who people truly are? Yes, we may simply want to eliminate a bubble. But is it honest to cross the line between eliminating something that is not part of us and completely changing what corresponds to our self?

I still don’t use Facetune and would never use it to completely change my image because for me perfection exists only in authenticity, in the opportunity to be ourselves. And how liberating it is to be us.
