Yuval Noah Harari challenges the future according to Facebook
Can Facebook really create a global community? Historian Yuval Noah Harari disputes Mark Zuckerberg’s vision

The mosaic above of Mark Zuckerberg is made up of around 1,000 photographs, and was specially produced for the FT by London-based visual artist Helen Marshall. The process by which collective images become a single image is described by Marshall as a “scientific experiment” but also an “intuitive process”.

After digitally hand-painting her base image – in this case of the Facebook founder – Marshall gathers more images, anywhere up to 20,000, which she whittles down and edits individually. She then feeds her selected images into a computer, and a mathematical algorithm arranges the images to depict her base image. The end result is “always a surprise”.
