Portraits of Automated Facial Recognition

On Machinic Ways of Seeing the Face

Lila Lee-Morrison

This book offers a unique analysis of these algorithms from a critical visual culture studies perspective. The first part of this study examines the example of an early facial recognition algorithm called “eigenface” and traces a history of the merging of statistics and vision. The second part addresses contemporary artistic engagements with facial recognition technology in the work of Thomas Ruff, Zach Blas, and Trevor Paglen. 

Moving Images

Mediating Migration as Crisis

Edited by Krista Geneviève Lynes, Tyler Morgenstern, and Ian Alan Paul

Bridging artistic practice and academic inquiry, the essays and artworks gathered in Moving Images interrogate the mediation of migration and refugeeism in the contemporary European conjuncture, asking how images, discourses, and data are involved in shaping visions of migration in increasingly global contexts.
