These images have been generated by a web-based system that reacts to its context, creating a unique image for each individual instance of the work. As such there is no original piece, only individual reproductions borne from the mechanical process of loading the work digitally, reflecting the inconsistent and ephemeral nature of art on the internet.

Faces were chosen to be the subject of work, because we humans are naturally inclined to recognise faces very easily, even through the distortion that the faces in the work suffer. Not only does the distortion prove our ability to perceive the shapes of faces very well, it illustrates just how adept we are at doing so. The slightest shift of facial features turns a smile into a grimace or an eye into a contorted squint and we pick up on all of these idiosyncrasies, empathising and automatically becoming emotionally affected by the expression that we see looking back at us.
