All the faces of Earth… Applied pareidolia

face tracking Earth

 

     “Onformative”, an independant studio for digital art and design located in Berlin, is tracking faces all over the surface of the Earth, 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 human 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…

Playing pareidolia with Freud…

Sigmund Freud vulture

 

     This is the shape of a vulture that Sigmund Freud, playing “pareidolia” without knowing it, found in Leonardo da Vinci’s oil painting “The Virgin and Child with St. Anne” (1503-1519).

     This vulture, that Sigmund Freud guessed was hidden in the folds of the garment of the Virgin, was the center of his speculations about Leonardo da Vinci’s alleged homosexuality and views on women in his book Leonardo da Vinci and a memory of his childhood (1910).

     If the vulture revealed anything, it was only about Freud’s personal obsessions. I’ve just found some other interesting shapes, highlighted in my latest work “Sigmund Freud and a memory of his elephants”. You will see just a few of them, solutions are innumerable…!
