An exhibition of work by Neale Willis
So let us for a moment consider a photograph. No longer the result of a series of chemical swilling around in a dark room, today an image is only an image because an algorithm says it is.
So let us begin by asking a computer to collect a series of images. But the machine is heavy handed. In a blink of an eye we have 2.21TB of data.
Did it enjoy collecting these files. Is it satisfied with its work? I don’t know. Shall we ask it? It didn’t reply. Perhaps it’s in a mood.
What these images contain is of no interest to the machine, that it is data is enough.
All they know is brute force of thought – to look for repeating patterns, to bludgeon their way to a conclusion.
So let us watch as this happens.
