day one of the portrait machine!

On the left is me describing, transcribing on the far right is Peter (my new studio mate) and in the middle is the first ever "subject"/participant of the portrait machine Sara.

I had to timeously usher in Sara so that Pete would remain unaware of who he was drawing.

It was an extremely intimate transaction. An entirely new vocabulary and language needs to be explored on finding more effective ways to describe the way a person looks, I found myself to be quite inarticulate in this regard. So for now in the still early days in the life of this project more experiments will be done within our studio before hitting the streets.
