face value explores long distance relationships in order to curate experiences that may bring couples closer together while promoting cross cultural understanding. Although technology bridges our communicative experiences, what we perceive as separation and presence is distorted. Hence, the aim of this project is to observe the limits of digital connections across different times, spaces and cultures and to fulfil the void that cannot be conveyed through digital media. face value is expressed through a time-lapse film that ceaselessly reminds viewers of absence and persistent longing, while a care gift package manual derived and customised from the intricacies of a long distance relationship attempts to create sensorial experiences to overcome it.
