New exclusive limited edition artwork for sale on FRAMED*

PERCEPT is an exploration of how computers see the world.

The utilization of machine vision through computer’s superior object recognition, will soon revolutionize our lives through the advent of driver-less cars. However, researchers have discovered that images containing noise or minuscule patterns can easily trick machines into perceiving objects incorrectly.

I have been searching for naturally occurring scenes within the physical world that a computer will perceive as drastically different. Hundreds of photographs have been analyzed, with the computer then being tasked to visualize these scenes via simulation. Every now and again severe misinterpretations of imagery and object occur, leading to the creation of otherworldly representations. PERCEPT is an exploration of this - what does a computer really see and how does its perception of reality differ to ours?

This exclusive artwork developed for FRAMED* further progresses the processes used to create previous works Mimic and Visions, which together, have been exhibited across the UK, as well as internationally during 2017. Notable galleries to have shown these works include The Barbican (London), MUTEK Festival 2017 (Montreal), Firstsite (Colchester) and Outpost (Norwich).
