A video montage of 320 selfie images from five cities.
The images are aligned with respect to eye position and sorted by the head tilt angle. The blending animation is finely tuned to create abstractions of the individual images, but still maintain a degree of fidelity with respect to image details and context. These movies present an artistic reflection of the tension between individual shots and high-level patterns, and provide not only a way to rapidly consume a high number of images, but also characterize the “ aggregate face of a city”.
In this short version, we cycle through Bangkok, Berlin, Moscow, New York, and Sao Paulo, but you can find the full videos with 640 images from each city in this collection.
