In recent years more and more images are being made, which are not intended at human spectators, but machines. At the same time, the images made for human spectators, are increasingly generated algorithmically by computers. What do you see? illuminates portraits using the otherwise invisible structured light which is designed to support algorithmic processing of scenes. The work provides an approximation of what a computer “sees”. The moving portraits are projected oversize, making them overlook the exhibition space and the visitors.
