face tracking

     An independant studio in Berlin is tracking the faces that can be found all over the planet, using satellite photos provided by Google Maps. The process called pareidolia we use to detect meaning in vague visual stimuli (clouds, inkblots, but also everyday life data, familiar faces, known objects…) and usually implemented by the temporal lobes of the brain, is partially managed by advanced face detection algorithm and face tracking library, pushing the automatic face tracking capabilities far beyond those of your digital camera…

     I’ll publish fewer but larger images, later… In the meantime, colors are doing the job of clarifying the complex drawn scene and characters. By experience, I know that people won’t really see the drawn creatures, even 10 meters wide, if I don’t paint them. Even entirely drawn, they don’t see them until painted. A part of an image is only in one’s mind…
