Syrop conceived this project in 1974 based on the experience of mistaking one person for another. Building upon past research and projects, Syrop arranged hundreds of portraits from high-school yearbooks in systematic groupings based upon similar facial characteristics. The result was a network of faces that the viewer experienced as meandering, interwoven pathways, or as fields of overlapping and dissolving characteristics.
