I do better carving images of people than talking to them.
“Face Blind” means I don’t recognize people I’ve met. I usually ignore them because I don’t know who they are. They, of course, know who they are, know me, and they really don’t like to be ignored.
That’s what I show in my “Face Blind” sculpture — my multiple face blind images 0.5, 1, 2, 4 & 16 at left and below.
My face blind carving shows faces with foreheads, eyes, glabella (upper bridge of the nose), upper cheeks but no nose, mouth or chin.
Brainy people tell us the nose, mouth and chin are key to the brain, that the brain uses these features in combination to recognize other people (and, yes, oneself).
Except sometimes it doesn’t work.
This brain disability is called prosopagnosis, its simple name is “face blindness.”
Figures carved in my multiple sculpture show no noses, mouths or chins — by now, the meaning is intuitively obvious to the casual observer (you).
But the progression in sizes, 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 16 … what’s happening there? Let your brain work on that.
