An algorithm explores the web by indexing images showing faces. These, which account for millions, are classified by proximity of facial features using a neural network. 
Displayed one after another, found images produce an animation that evolves throughout the frame: anonymous people merge with old and contemporary celebrities along surprising transitions, and a meta-face seems to emerge in a new heterogeneous and disruptive space, which continues self-generating. 
The visual component of big data is thus transposed in a playful way in the form of an image-by-image animation, mirroring the cinematographic device at its origins.
