Together

"Together" adapts conventional portraiture and contemporary icons of facial recognition software to build group compositions. Through the use of a custom image comparison algorithm, the piece implies an intangible connection between strangers despite their isolated experiences. Over time, as more viewers choose to participate, the collection of images grow and the resulting chosen sets of portraits begin to have increasing compositional similarity.
