Elle is "a 'virtual head' of an Asian looking female in three dimensions, disturbing the viewer with its sole movement of blinking eyes and its subsequent revolutions showing the view of the 'empty' rear of the head, its face then only a mask. In the sidebar to Elle artist Ikam describes her visual texts of this type as 'protheses' to access 'new architectures of perception' and claims that 'In these works, the face is no longer a 'record' but a 'process''".[1]
