From thousands of images generated during the development of the Faces of Chaos series, this was chosen for its subtle detail and evocative overall form.
Our brains are attuned to see faces in almost anything that has bilateral symmetry, including mathematically generated images like this. Beyond attributing facial characteristics to abstract images, I also found myself choosing names and colors that created an almost mythological aura, with archetypes such as “king” and “warrior” emerging from the chaos.
