NAME: Weird Faces Study

AUTHOR: Mokafolio aka Matthias Dörfelt, a German communication designer and media artist based in Los Angeles.

DESCRIPTION: Computer-made art is usually easily recognizable by its generative aspect but the algorithm invented by Matthias Dörfelt gives the computer the ability to produce unique drawings. The faces might be similar but they are all different from one another. The algorithm, programmed in JavaScript using the PaperJS library, can generate an infinite number of variations. Noise is applied to the outlines to give a hand-drawn look that makes it even more “human”.

AMUSEMENT RATE: The project successfully combines illustration and programming. The drawings might just be a series of weird potato heads they have an artistic touch that computer-generated art often lacks. The next step is to give computers a sense of style and taste and the next Picasso might be a Dell.
