1. While sitting at the chair in front of the scanner you are bathed in structured light, allowing the shape of your profile to be digitized and archived.

Janus is often depicted with two faces, each facing in opposite directions. "The Janus Machine" offers a modern corollary for this ancient metaphor and mythology: the real face, and the one stored by the computer.
