Abstract

Faces are strange things. How is it possible that you can recognize someone you haven’t seen in twenty years? Their hair is a different color and almost certainly a different length, and their skin is less elastic — giving a different morphology to the face. Along with this change would be the presence of wrinkles; perhaps the eyes would still be the same, but even eyes change color with time. It’s possible, though, to catch a glimpse of someone in a crowd, in poor lighting, out of their usual context, or even just catch a glimpse of their side profile, but you’re still able to recognize them. Strange, but often true. Try this out at a high-school reunion…
