Imperfect Copies
Imperfect Copies is an installation based on real-time juxtapositions of human faces in a rigid grid structure, designed to be projected in a panoramic manner or in a cave environment. The software fueling the installation is endowed with a face detection AI, which searches trough and streams the images of thousands of online cameras dispersed all around the globe on which concurrently a human face appears. The rigid structure of the projected images is thus contrasts with their constant fluctuation as the faces appear and disappear in the camera’s field of vision, while a multi-channel audio is being generated based on the inputs. The installation provides the visitor with an immersive experience and might provoke thoughts about the importance or insignificance of the individuum, their simultaneous presence and utter isolation and omnipresent surveillance.
