DEAD-PIXEL DIARIES

Inspired by the erratic dysfunctional pixels of cameras and screens, this physical installation consists in a series of black sticks pointing to a surveillance camera purposely installed in the exhibition space. The sticks are fixed at different points in the room, and they are all within the visible range of the surveillance camera. The tip of each stick is equidistant from the camera. From the perspective of the camera, the sticks look like black dots – or better – physical dead pixels. There is a sentence printed on each stick.
The dozens of sentences created so far reflect on notions of perception, perspective, machine vision, and blind spots, questioning the analogy between the human eye and a camera.
