Who Is Lance Zhang?

As the Internet develops rapidly, people have established many different versions of themselves in the virtual space. The "I" demonstrated on Facebook may be different from the "I" demonstrated on Twitter, both of which are only one side of original "I". Take my personal name "Lance Zhang" as an example. I chose portraits of 10 people with the first name Lance and 10 people with the last name Zhang on Internet, with my own portrait, I divided each of them into 81 equal pieces. Then I wrote a Processing program to randomly combine them to generated mixed portraits. The results was that all those head portraits that seemed a little bit distinctive were all individuals with the name of Lance Zhang. They are all Lance Zhang, but in the same time, they are not Lance Zhang.
