Echoism

Have you ever heard the theory that the more symmetrical a person's face, the more classically beautiful he or she is considered to be?

Ever wondered what that means, exactly? We have. Isn't everyone's face symmetrical? A clever artist named Julian Wolkenstein set out to answer that question, and you can be part of his project.

Wolkenstein's site, echoism.org, allows anyone with a webcam (or, if you download the app, an iPhone or iPad) to take a photo of his or her face. (Note that your photo will automatically be uploaded onto the site, though no names or email addresses are attached). What ends up on the site is a double image; one featuring the left half of the face mirred against itself; the other featuring the right.

The results are fascinating (disclaimer: if you end up squandering an hour at this site, don't say we didn't warn you!). Some folks look the same in both photos, more or less, while others look like 2 entirely different people.

How about you? And what does that say about our perception of beauty?
