Human / Computer
manually generated images, 2021
software, human input

Human / Computer is a series of manually generated portraits. Each sitter enters 10,000 digits between 0 and 9 into a custom software, each keypress setting the gray value of an single pixel in a 100x100 grid. 

The sitter is given the aim of entering random values, and is shown the software-generated image of the same dimensions as reference.  

The sitter inevitably fails to replicate the computers randomness, resulting in visible and unique patterns in each image; a record of their labor and affective state during the process of production.
