Devious Autoportraits

Using only zigzagging horizontal lines, this series attempts to feature the least possible information that will still yield a recognizable face. It is the first series of portraits using larger line segments instead of the micro-segments used in previous works.

It is quite amazing to realize how little detail is necessary for our brain to actually recognize a previously known face. It definitely feels like the Gestalt theory of perception is at work here.

This series laid some of the ground work for what will later become Yöti.
