Aw man, it`s wired b/cuz I can come up w/ stuff like this in my head without having to take a lof of pics. It`s kinda wierd how I already have seen people that look really close to the future faces and and mixed together faces....on the future faces website, a lot of the future guys looked the same to me. I would like to see a future face of color, so I`m gonna do one for my city!

Male beauty didn`t change as dramatically as female beauty......I`m kinda mad that I don`t really see people of color.....

Yeah, i remember the one posted on here about "how we will all one day look" taking pictures from every race, region, sex, ect. Very cool idea, too bad they couldnt actually get a picture instead of a blurred face.

Um.... I don`t get it. I think I have a general idea of what this may be about.... Ah, who am I kidding, I just don`t get it.

Ooooh, there was a great photo composite site like this on IAB a while ago -- www.faceoftomorrow.com. They went to major cities in different countries to show what the "face" of that country was (male and female). Pretty neat stuff.

Thats really cool when you think about it! If they just took every female face you see and smushed it all together you could make that face you see in your dreams. When you`re dreaming and you see a face that you don`t recognise thats the face that you see everywhere. So they could just make THE face from the dreams of so many people! Wow.....I`m getting too involved in this.

These things are really cool. I remember one from a while ago that was a composite of students who went to 1 particular college.

Amazing..... I love it.....

I was amused by this though:
"The third piece compares different composite portraits ranging from Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary (which we extracted from art history paintings and religious greeting cards)"

I`m glad they pointed out where they got the pictures from cuz if someone came up to me and was like "Hey! Jesus is living in my basement wanna come take pictures?!" I`d be kinda freaked out.....
