In 2005, as an example of using image morphing methodology to study the effects of averageness, imaging researcher Pierre Tourigny created a composite of about 30 faces to find out the current standard of good looks on the Internet. On the popular Hot or Not web site, people rate others’ attractiveness on a scale of 1 to 10. To make this hot or not pallate of morphed images, photos from the site were sorted by rank and used SquirlzMorph to create multi-morph composites from them.

The British mini-sculptor Willard Wigan creates these incredible mini sculptures that have already the status of “the eighth wonder of the world”. The process of creating is very delicate and almost anything can affect his work. So, the artist “enters a meditative state in which his heartbeat is slowed, allowing him to reduce hand tremors and sculpt between pulse beats”. It’s just impressive what efforts artists should do in order to achieve the desired effect. Just look at his works.
In this type of race the most interesting thing happens at the very end. Edit: it seems that we got wrong the information about this race. We decided to quote our visitor who left us an informative comment. You'll see it inside the post.
