self-portrait 4


This fourth self-portrait was inspired by Dave Bonta’s ‘engaging in an odd form of egosurfing with typoGenerator, inserting the text “dave” and “bonta” and marveling at the random images the program retrieves from the web.’

I just had to try it out and here’s what typoGenerator did with my name. Interesting, isn’t it? Do you see the map of Finland, and what looks like little bits from my prints? All I had to do was lighten it a bit. It’s like a portrait of my web presence, of my virtual self, in brilliant colour!

It’s a long way from the first self-portrait, from hand-drawn to web-generated! Here are the second and the third portraits.
