Exhibited in this chapter is the alteration of “interfaciality” in contrast to “faciality,” which is the confined depiction of the face as the mask of singular soul. The epiphany of the face evokes that the encounter of a face other than one's own requires an individual to respect the other and vice versa, regardless of differences in orientation, social and economic class, education, and the like. Not only are humans capable of seeing others in person but they can also look at imagined or virtually present objects as if they really exist in the kind of world dictated to us by society and tradition. New technologies like digital avatars, mechanical explorations, films, and approaches, among others, are substantiated to analyze the interconnections between information technology and romantic feelings.

Keywords:   interfaciality, faciality, epiphany of the face, face, society, tradition, technologies, romantic feelings
