Discover Your Ancient Sculptural Doppelgänger #ArtTuesday

We have to admit, we’re loving this fun concept from François Brunelle and Quebec’s Musée de la Civilisation. Come on, be a sport and walk the doppelgäng-plank here!

Via Hyperallergic.

Quebec’s Musée de la Civilisation is currently searching for participants to feature in its upcoming exhibition My 2,000-Year-Old Double, which takes a pretty entertaining, very 21st-century approach to exploring the faces of ancient sculpture. The institution is inviting anyone to upload a selfie to its website, where facial recognition software will analyze individual details and compare them to those of 2,000-year-old statues. It will then match you with an ancient doppelgänger, and if you think you closely resemble your chosen sculpture, you can enter a contest to be one of 30 individuals the museum will highlight in the fall show.

All of this is part of a project by Montreal-based photographer François Brunelle, who has, for years, captured images of strangers around the world who look alike. Brunelle will shoot portraits of the selected winners that will be displayed in the museum next to their stony counterparts.
