Sponge, 2020.

This sponge displays a live running average of the last 100 faces which have viewed it. Every 10 seconds, it checks for new faces to soak up and incorporate into its average. The longer any individual stands in front of Sponge, the more it begins to resemble them as their image weighs the average. It is an absorbant index saturated by its own process of becoming.

This sponge was made using DLIB and OPENCV.

this is in animation of a changing average over 30 minutes of heavy viewing.
