Computer Algorithm Generates ‘Hand Drawn’ Faces
Media artist Matthias Dörfelt's 'Weird Faces Study' features random cartoon-ish faces that look like the same person illustrated them.
Los Angeles-based media artist Matthias Dörfelt (Mokafolio) has created a wall of cartoon-ish faces that are imperfect but similar, suggesting they were hand-drawn by the same person. But in fact, the faces were made with a computer algorithm that randomly generates a unique face. ‘Weird Faces Study’ combines Dörfelt’s interest in illustration with programming to create something procedural that has an individual artistic touch to it.
