Det Perfekte Menneske / The Perfect Human
As humans in the 21st century, we consume imagery through platforms governed by machine learning algorithms invisible to the naked eye. In this collaborative series, the artists investigates what happens if these algorithms are allowed to intervene with the traditional process and understanding of portrait photography, effectively giving up control over how the most distinguishable part of the human anatomy is represented.
A collaboration between Bjørn Gunnar Staal of Void and Pernille Sandberg. Void is a computational design studio working in the intersection between design, architecture, art and technology. Through their innate cross-disciplinary approach to visual art, Void blurs the boundaries between what is normally referred to as real and virtual.
