Making Faces With Pareidolia

A random polygon generator constantly makes shapes until a facial-recognition algorithm detects a "face."

It's weird and telling. It's also informative for those in the paranormal field, reminding us how much "random" can look like something recognizable, especially when we want it to.

Would be interesting to use face recognition with natural shadows on a white board. Found these with human (my) face recognition.
