Computer Goggles, Untitled Composition 2
Ten rectangles of different colours, shapes and sizes inhabit the black canvas of Computer Goggles, Untitled Composition 2. Shapes either overlap or not. All seem to shrink down as they retrieve in the form of a perspective, driving the eye to a focal point. But what governs this geometry and is it the result of the aesthetic quest of the artist? The computeresque colour codes seem to indicate otherwise. Computer Goggles is, in fact, a photo app that captures the world as algorithms see it. It translates images of identified objects into a flat, multi-coloured structure. It is the skeleton of a picture based on a machine’s object identification database and a way to explore non-human compositions.
