Visualizing the composite human

Well, human face anyway. Check out the faceoftomorrow.com project, where they’ve shot photos of hundreds of women and men from a variety of cities, then processed the images to show what a composite male or female face looks like from any of a dozen or so cities. This is cool, cool stuff. It’s a bit deceptive in that the process of merging the faces smooths out facial features and the texture of folk’s skin, making it look like these cities are peopled with lingerie models, but you can use a flash app to check out the individual faces the composites are comprised of. They haven’t yet posted US cities yet but two are apparently on the way.
