TED2007: Face Morphing
To support the theme for TED2007, I was invited as a guest artist to visualize human icons. Working in collaboration with Corbis, I produced a 15 minute animation that morphs famous iconic faces in an eerie progression. One of the interesting effects is to notice the moment-to-moment sense of recognition as we see faces liquify from one to another. Many people will, for an instant 'see' or recognize a person in mid morph when the blended features - an eyebrow or chin shape - resembles a person other than the two morph subjects.
