‘Portrait’ is a series of portraits representing an identity of a movie.

A custom software detects faces from every 24 frames of a movie, and creates an average face of all found faces. The composite image reflects the centric figure(s) and the visual mood of the movie. Movies used include Avatar, Mission: Impossible, Black Swan, The Matrix, Amélie, Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and others.

Shinseungback Kimyonghun is a Seoul based artist group consisting of Shin Seung Back and Kim Yong Hun. Their collaborative practice explores expanding area of imaging and vision using image processing and computer vision.
