Facial Abstraction Revisited
An inverse approach to investigating the brain's ability to perceive facial structure. This series started with real face images that were then distorted and abstracted using MSG processing. As opposed to building abstract geometry that looks like a face as seen in some previous posts. These were all done while fine tuning the new evolution toolbar controls in the Studio Artist evolution editor.
It's interesting to see when the visual systems face detection fades as the abstraction process increases. I've been investigating computer vision algorithms for face detection recently so you can see the correlation to certain simple geometric features vanishing and facial popup vanishing as well.
