Connecting Curious Dots

On the intersection of technology, culture, and everyday life: My semi-updated space to collect and link my thoughts about interesting things I spot.

The Mysterious Appeal of Changing Faces

My friend’s ego got a minor blow a few summers ago, when I showed him that his "life as art" project (photographing himself every day) was apparently a rather common fascination.  Several people have YouTubed timelapse series of self-portraits taken every day (accompanied by personal soundtracks).  These once seemingly private photos range from the chronicling of 6 years of subtle changes, to 9 months of gestation, and 84 days of weight loss

Thus perhaps unsurprisingly an advertising agency thought potential clients might like remixing faces  (mouths, noses, heads, and eyes of their staff to create 760,000 different possible faces).   The simple interface also offers the option to push shuffle.
