Two versions of you

11 February 2011

Julian Wolkenstein wrote in to inform us of the launch of Echoism, an iPhone app/website based off a series of photographs he shot in 2010, entitled Symmeytrical Portraits. Like the photos above, the app generates two versions of you, the left you and the right you.

There is a myth, some say a science, suggesting people who have more symmetrical faces are considered more “attractive.“ “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?
