The human face has been admired, interpreted, disfigured, decorated, puzzled over, and reconstructed from earliest times. But what do faces mean? How should we interpret expressions? Does the face indicate personality? What makes our faces unique? Far from the world of facelifts and Botox, science is now embarking on undreamed-of facial reconstructionâa full-face transplant will soon be available as the ultimate new identity under the FBIâs Witness Protection Program. But what will such drastic surgery do to our perception of othersâand ourselves? Future Face is a timely and thought-provoking study. Sandra Kemp, Director of Research at the Royal College of Art, is curator of the 2004â2005 âFuture Faceâ exhibition at the Science Museum, London.
