Echoism [iPhone, WebApp]

Playing with the  idea, some say a science, that people who have more symmetrical faces are considered more “attractive”, Julian Wolkenstein created this iPhone application and a site where you can split and mirror images of yourself or others.

“Echoism” 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?

The process is a face-to-camera portrait, the image is split into a left and a right section, then one side is horizontally flipped. These images are recombined to create two separate and symmetrical identities of the subject. iPhone applications also lets you upload your image to the website or share on facebook, twitter or send by email.
