The Uncanny Valley

If you live in downtown Toronto, you may have noticed some celebrity portraits popping up in your neighbourhood! These guerrilla-style ads are actually the work of photographer Peter Andrew, and part of his Uncanny Valley project. The portraits are actually close-ups of wax sculptures based on the celebrities. The series even caught the eye of Applied Arts magazine and blogTO

*The uncanny valley is the hypothesis that human replicas which appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings elicit feelings of eeriness and revulsion among some observers.
