Generating Random Faces

These face-like patterns are what you get if you combine a random polygon generator with A.I. facial recognition software.

Instead of using face recognition software, it would be even more interesting to channel the multiple generation feedback loop in real time through the face-recognition areas of an individual human's brain. Depending on how you set things up, it could be a hallucinatory experience, leading either to kittens, monsters, familiar faces, or maybe Alfred E. Neuman.

Well, somebody is certain to see Chuck Close, so I might as well be the first.
