Ever wondered what a more symmetrical version of you would look like? There's an app for that
Friday 28 January 2011
Perfectly symmetrical faces are supposed to appear more "beautiful," but in case your name isn't Charlize Theron, you're likely to prefer one side of your face to the other. See what you would look like if your face consisted of two times your best side with new app Echoism.
Simply upload a picture of you via web cam or your iPhone, and Echoism will split the photo into a left and a right section. Then, one side at a time is flipped over horizontically to create two images, mirroring your left or your right to create a completely symmetrical, new you.
Echoism is the project of Australian artist Julian Wolkenstein who explains: "[The app] plays with the notion of your own identity. What do you look like? What are the things that make you look like you - your identifying features? If you are made symmetrical, do you consider yourself more beautiful, less so, or is it just weird? Or is it you at all? Do you have a best side? What is to be said of left and right brain dominance?"
But even if you're just after finding out your most photogenic side to get that next Facebook profile picture right, this app is for you. Get it for free: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/echoism/id412385915?mt=8
Wolkenstein is publishing users' pictures at http://echoism.org.
