_retinal recognition vs. artificial recognition


Alongside many related experiments, Recognition analyzes images from news reels to match them with historical artwork. Using a range of artificial intelligence technologies, it analyzes images through object, facial, composition and context  recognition. In doing so it aims to simulate how humans see images.

This comparative viewing is intended to offer new ways to understand art as well as current images. Does it? Can it? The realm of art with its intents, expressions and possible interpretations and sensorial perceptions can only be thought as infinite and certainly reaching beyond any sort of “intelligence.”

The recurrent mismatches of the Recognition project does imply relative futility, however, this technical experiment is impressive and allows viewers creative approaches to actually consider the space between two images that in truth are in most ways completely unrelated.
