Eight portraits of Teddy Quinlivan generated from existing pictures using computer code

Another experiment in using faces recognition software (see the Bella series) to crop source images to make pixel portraits. What if I did not copy over pixels, but larger pieces of the source image?

I used images of Teddy Quinlivan to create this series. To test what would work best I let the program size the areas randomly, between 5 x 5 px (1/100 of the source) to 250 x 250 (1/4). And as before I let the program run and create a 1000 images, from which I selected the 8 that I liked best.

In the end every size of the blocks generated interesting and convincing results, so I decided to select 8 with all different block size.
