Book Summary:

In a thoroughly modernized, constantly updating society, where can true connection be found? The bodies of citizens and the infrastructure surrounding them is constantly updating. People can’t recognize themselves in old pictures, and they wake up in apartments of completely different sizes and shapes. Commuter routes radically differ day to day. The citizens struggle with adaptability as updates happen too quickly, and the changes are far too radical to be intuitive. There is no way to resist—the updates are enacted by a nameless, faceless force. The narrator of Familiar Face works in the government’s department of complaints, reading through citizens’ reports of the issues they’ve had with the system updates. The job isn’t to fix anything but rather to be the sole human sounding board, a comfort in a system so decidedly impersonal. These complaints aren’t mere bug reports—they can be anything: existential, petty, just plain heartbreaking. Michael DeForge’s ability to find the humanity and emotional truth within the outlandish bureaucracy of everyday life is unparalleled. The signatures of his work—a vibrant color palette, surreal designs, and a self-aware sense of humor—enliven an often bleak technocratic future. Familiar Face is a masterful and deeply funny exploration of how we define our sense of self, and how we cope when so much of life is out of our control.

Or on a private beach in Thailand. Hasn’t it always been like this? Alcoholic gnomes make better roommates than you might think. Better than eels anyway. A transplanted New Yorker returns to his Alaskan hometown after fifteen years away. Two young boys on a remote South Pacific island go in search of the legendary John Frum, the one who brings cargo.

Book Summary:

Face recognition is widely held to rely on 'configural processing', recently defined as an analysis of metric distances between features. Given that face recognition concerns those faces of people who we know, it is suggested that our unique representations of familiar faces contain information about these metric distances. The experiments in this thesis examine the hypothesis that face recognition relies on 'configural processing' by comparing performance between familiar and unfamiliar faces in a range of tasks. Experiments in the first half of the thesis investigate the effects of geometric distortions on different face tasks. Experiments in the second half examine familiarity advantages in rescaling distorted facial images. The main findings are that face recognition might not rely on simple measures of metric distances between features, and that observers show a surprising degree of tolerance to configural changes applied to familiar faces. This suggests that an operationalisation of configural processing will need to consider other measures that do not survive the image deformations tested in this thesis. The findings are discussed in relation to existing research on familiar face recognition as distinct from unfamiliar face perception.
