Paper avatars

Have you ever thrown away an ugly picture of yourself and chosen some better looking ones instead for your album? In such case you already altered "the reality" and created an avatar image of yourself. It is only natural that people want to look nice on the photos, but this is not "the reality" any more but "a version of reality". It is a human tragedy that the more we can change the versions of reality, the more we will doubt in the existence of one and only real world.

On March 4, Estonia will have general elections. This means a lot of really funny political avatars on the streets. Pictures with a little bit smoother skin, less wrinkles and fat. Welcome to the virtual world of politics.

Real life?
