Fascinating Composite Portraits of Every Face in a Movie

Seoul-based artist group Shinseungback Kimyonghun — creative duo Shin Seung Back and Kim Yong Hun, who we learned about on Booooooom — created custom software that configures a composite image reflecting the average face in a movie. The program tracks a person’s face every 24 frames. The final portrait is fascinating, because it resembles a ghostly version of each movie’s biggest stars. Avatar is particularly weird due to the movie’s humanoid characters. After the jump, check out the faces from Taxi Driver, Black Swan, and more. We’ve also included a video so you can watch Shinseungback Kimyonghun’s process in action.
