In aesthetics the uncanny valley is the hypothesis that human replicas that appear almost, but not exactly, like real human beings elicit feelings of eeriness and revulsion among some observers. With visual media capable of creating computer generated 'people' for gaming and film can the state of the art ever escape the uncanny valley? For the artist when does portraiture become caricature, become grotesque, and can this be used for positive effect in SF and Fantasy Art?
