Recognition by Manuel Fernández





Manuel Fernández has created Recognition, an ongoing gif series which uses the face recognition software as pretext to generate a series of animated gif images emulating the process, trying to recognize faces on common objects without getting it, moving the subject away from its conventional use and deviating the attention to other kind of images.  See more;

"In the away from the keyboard age, the use of the smartphone's camera with increasingly sophisticated specifications and the emergence of mobile social networks based on making and image distribution as instagram, has enabled a visual narcissism never before known in other historical period." - Manuel Fernández.
