Labelled Violent

(2020)

Video and Photographic Series

 

A photographic series studying the development of AI violence recognition surveillance systems and the origins of their description of violence. The series compares re-presented stills from a ‘violent’ video used in the software’s development with a studio re-staging. The images focus on unique moments from both events that comply or contradict the label of ‘violent’, allowing the viewer to consider if the actions are descriptive of their label.
