Phase-to-face is inspired by fractal structures in which the individual elements—in this case morphing faces—constitute the overall structure.
The morph of each individual face—as a concrete movement—seems to abstract the texture of the overall image surface, which itself is also in a concrete motion.This provokes a curious faculty of the mind to identify what the images represent and how they are changing.
The departure point is a set of static faces—from contemporary female actresses to undefined men deceased a long time ago. Phase-to-face applies a basic human cognitive faculty—facial recognition –to the spatialisation techniques of fulldome. On the acoustic level an equally so familiar signal is applied—the human voice. A dense spiralling cloud captivates and relentlessly drags the visitor into the structure, challenging one to grasp a figure that is nearly impossible to discern.
