Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Face-ism Ratio


I've been reading an interesting and very well presented book called, Universal Principles of Design. One topic therein is 'face-ism'. Apparently, images depicting a person with a high face-ism ratio (where the face takes up most of the image) focus attention on the person's intellectual and personality attributes. So, here's one of me - what do you think? The research doesn't explain whether the inclusion of a purple woolly hat has any further negative impact on your perception but perhaps it might!

Comment by my Dad made me smile, "not sure what to deduce from the close up-other than you hadn't shaved and your eyes looked as though you were short of sleep!!"

I guess I'm getting old, the eyes are usually much worse than this. Perhaps I should do a daily eye photograph and people could guess how much sleep I had.
