fb Faces

I had no idea what this was on first glance. Turns out, it's 100,000 facebook profile pictures made into wallpaper. I wouldn't want to live with it, but the idea is pretty cool. This from the artists:
"fbFaces is an attempt to visualize the incredible amount of data and images that we are daily overwhelmed by, so that we can neither realize our own selectivity nor consider the amount of data perceived.

The wallpaper transforms the room itself into a flood of information. It surrounds us, cannot be estimated from distance; details can only be caught through determined selection. But then they vanish again – in a cloud of information." - Joern Roeder and Jonathan Pirnay."
