Jesús González Rodríguez, Medio Proyecto (1/2 Project), 2011. For his series "1/2", the Venezuelan artist creates unsettling portraits by collaging multiple photographs of individuals while "cutting" out along their edges. Each image is composed of a full face and profile view of the subject against a blank white wall, creating a nearly optical-illusion in which the portraits can appear momentarily normal until one's eyes fall upon an outlying characteristic. Ref. "freaks; multidirectional face illusions" (S).
