Man of a Thousand Faces

Pablo Manriquez, Flickr user and curator of Net art objects points out that the venerable TIME magazine online site has run a piece about representations of Barack Obama on Flickr. It's also interesting to note the large number of photomosaics that have been created of the candidate and the representative function that those images present of a leader as a synecdochal head of state. For more on the genre of the photomosaic, there is an essay in Making Things Public on the subject.
