Look to the clouds trying to image faces is a carefree game that everyone does. In Faces in the Sky the artificial intelligence of a computer try to do the same action through an algorithm made for search human faces inside photos. I submitted to the informatic eye thousands pictures of skies from all over the world, some taken by myself, others found in Internet or given by friends but only few little pieces saved themselves from the multitude.
While we looking to the chosen clouds sometimes the hidden face is clear, other times doubt is legitimate: is the machine wrong or we have not enough imagination?
