The combinations of image and captions highlight the gap between human and machine seeing, and are poetic and humorous. Offering a differentiated perspective of the surrounding world, the project raises questions related to the role technology plays in our seeing, as well as its seeming objectivity.
The project was presented in a solo exhibition at Lokomotif in Lentvaris in 2019.
A man with dark hair and a sunset in the background was also presented in group exhibitions Screen Age I: Self-Portrait (Riga Photography Biennial, 2018) and Homo Absentia (2020/2021).
