Images of faces from jeepney exteriors were animated by the artist, like moving portraits. These craft of spray painting faces, especially family members, religious icons, pop characters, texts are very common practice of jeepney drivers especially in Manila like “pimp my ride”. These local buses are the main mode of transportation all over the country and believed to be a by product of the 2nd World War, jeeps that were left by the American soldiers turned into public / private vehicles. Taking photographs especially family members from the exterior of the jeeps, the artist used an application of face motion editor and filter from smart phone, making these faces like they are alive, creating a new imagination of what is living a city that are both public and private.
