Prosopagnosia (Faceblindness) 2012. Those with severe face blindness find they cannot even recognise their own face in a mirror. Half the population have a decreasing ability to recognise faces whilst the other half have an increasing ability up to those who are "super recognisers". They might recognise someone completely out of context who perhaps served them coffee in a bar many years previously. The idea of this project is to show to those who do not have a significant level of prosopagnosia how it might feel to be severely face blind. The removal of eye brows is perhaps the most striking element for most people. For some it is a few moles that help them while others recognise no facial features at all but only the hair style. Today the ease with which hairstyles and colours can change from a bottle can cause great confusion for a prosopagnostic.
