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