The project is related to the issue of reading faces, reading personality traits and emotions, searching for common features of people and a critical commentary on stereotyping. The forgotten, utopian pseudo-science called Physiognomy, i.e. reading human faces, is the science that arose on the basis of instinctive, primal reflexes and was to give people an objective, effective tool for assessing primary personality traits based on the physical appearance of a person. Physiognomy completely disgraced itself as a tool of eugenics in the first half of the twentieth century.
