Abstract

Collaborative photographic project in conjunction with Frequency Festival and co-creator Adam O'Meara.
Over a two day period 100+ unique portraits were gathered of willing public participants using a methodology of careful alignment and lighting. Images were digitally combined using several algorithms in order to find create the 'average' face of the festival.
The intention was to move the portrait away from a form that seeks to highlight the individual in favor of the communal.
Images were (and continue to be at the time of writing) available for viewing online.
