“Weird Faces”: An Algorithm Based Project That Creates An Infinite Collection Of Fun Looking Sketched Faces

Computer generated images have a certain aesthetics to them that make them immediately recognizable as such by the trained eye. Weird Faces is an attempt to combine my old interest in illustration with programing, to create something procedural that has a truly individual artistic touch to it and is not instantly recognizable as a generative art piece. Even though, the faces look hand-drawn, they are entirely expressed by algorithmic rules. Each face is random, each face is unique. Still, they look similar to my actual hand drawn faces.

Computer Algorithm Depixelizes Your 8-bit Graphics

unnamed

For those of you who grew up playing video games, surely you would have noticed how far graphics in video games have come over the years. Imagine playing your NES and SNES titles on a High Definition 3DTV, won’t the pixels look all the more pronounced? Well, just like how there seems to be an app for everything, there is also nothing a good computer algorithm cannot fix – and here we are with one which is capable of automatically fixing all those pixels on your behalf, letting Mario look super smooth.
