My Human Face

Last night I watched all four parts of The Human Face, a BBC documentary that examines the science behind both the physical and sociological anatomy of human faces.

The key trait, it turns out, in the most attractive faces is symmetry. The more symmetrical a face is, the more pleasing it is to the viewer. This factoid made me curious. I decided to play around with the special effects in the Photo Booth program on Jason's computer...

This is my face:

Now here's what I would look like if my face was  perfectly symmetrical:

Pretty cool, huh?
