The Average Human Project

The Face of Sydney

"Using specialist techniques, thousands of portraits of individual people have been compacted to provide a representative male and female “look” for the 160,000 residents of Sydney’s City of Villages.
•People were drawn from Pyrmont, Millers Point, Rosebery, Redfern, Waterloo, Newtown, East Sydney, Glebe, The Rocks, Ultimo, Haymarket, CBD and Alexandria.
•The oldest was 93 and the youngest two weeks.
•Some 54 per cent of participants described their ancestry as Anglo Saxon Celtic, 3 per cent as Indigenous Australians, 4 per cent as having South American ancestry and 11 per cent Chinese ancestry.
•Participants reflected the diverse or homogenous ethnic origins and age structure of the local population.

A part of the city called Haymarket has a sizable Chinese minority.
