WNYC and PRI’s Studio 360 did a great feature on my Stranger Visions project:

I received an anonymous sample of hair, and made a portrait of this person’s DNA – see the results below!

    Still, Nice.

    I’m wondering if your ‘faces’ can pass the turing test, or even if they get past the ‘uncanny valley’ it’s hard knowing not seeing first hand…

      Oh my they definitely wouldn’t pass as flesh! I would say they are squarely in the uncanny valley…

        Ha!
        Let me think about it….
        …..
        Ha!

        I’ve always thought that the first ‘sapient’ automata will scare the poop out of people, mostly becuse we cant replicate sensory percepton exactly as humans ‘see’ the world….

        Great work!
