Self-portraitist clickflashwhirr has been snapping shots of her mug every day for over a year—and that's nothing new on the net. But averaging 500 of those snaps into one artificial face? Beautifully creepy.
The digital composite was done by Tiemen Rapati, who explains he "simply [counted] the individual RGB values for each pixel and for each portrait, and [divided] those values by the number of portraits." The result is a slightly hazy, easy on the eyes, year-plus amalgamation of a woman. It's dreamlike, but unsettling to think the face we're looking at here never really existed. I wonder if her face hurt after making that same expression over and over and over and over again? [Tiemen Rapati via Colossal]
