Summary Bolatagici has a strong interest in the symbolic aspects of traditional Fijian mat weaving and its ceremonial importance for various stages of the life cycle. This work draws from online archives of Fijian military and private security workers posted in social media. The faces are pixelated to obscure identities, and in this process they become a visual reference to woven patterns. On the other side of the screen we see a woman's hands weaving a portrait of a soldier together, as she tries to make someone or something visible again. Yet the image of the face is never completed.; it remains unresolved and the identity unknown.
