Mike Mike

FACE OF TOMORROW (2003-2005)

In the cosmopolitan centers that he visits, Mike Mike makes photographs of the first 100 people who will pose for him. Then he superimposes these photographs over one another digitally to produce two 'average' faces, one of a man and one of a woman. By mixing all the races and influences in a city, Mike wishes to create the face of a future resident. His montages reveal that the differences between people all over the world are becoming smaller. That is the result of increased globalization - although according to Mike Mike, in Istanbul, the crossroads of four continents and his present home, that process already began a thousand years ago.
