The Face of Sidney Combines 160,000 Aussies


To promote its Local Action Plans scheme, the city of Sidney, Australia captured the faces of 160,000 of its residents, morphing the images into one male and one female composite face for a project called ‘The Face of Sidney.’ The participants ranged in age from two weeks to 93 years, and lived in 13 different areas within central Sidney. Their race was more homogeneous: over fifty percent of the project participants described themselves as Anglo Saxon Celtic, while only three percent considered themselves Indigenous Australians. Check out the “making-of” video for ‘The Face of Sidney’ below, and also see our earlier post on face averaging.
