9 high-contrast images of a single person’s face portraying distinctly different emotions are blended on top of one another as if painted in layers on to a canvas. Dragging the mouse across the canvas allows the user to grab hold of a randomly chosen brush. The result is a powerful, unpredictable series of partially recognizable “hybrid” facial expressions. Occasionally, one can glimpse traces of compulsion, pity, envy, and similarly complex emotions.
