PIXEL FACE: I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN DOESN’T COME TOGETHER

PIXEL FACE (2012)

WHEN THINGS GO WRONG THINGS GO RIGHT

I would like to introduce you to my new friend.  I call him Pixel Face.

Last week I was ‘commissioned’ to try and touch up and enlarge three rather battered old photographic prints.  Small, torn, worn and weary – they were not in a good way.  To achieve the  desired goal, I needed to get a very good scan and so set about doing a ridiculously large resolution scan to work from.

Two prints scanned fine, but the third was printed on a rather strange fibrous paper and was of fairly low quality – for some reason, the scanner could not handle it and the completed copy was a set of very high resolution pixels.

So Pixel Face was born and I think he is amazing.  Whilst comprised of very little (but very high quality!) data – you can still work out what is going on in the image.

So the game for you today is…guess what the photograph is of and I want more specific than ‘a person’.

 

Pixel Face is yet more evidence that you should always try things and experiment and embrace mistakes, because sometimes they end up looking brilliant!
