2016, collaboration with Ruben van de Ven

Together with artist, film-maker and programmer Ruben van de Ven, I created a work in the context of the 'Boundaries of the archive' research lab organised by the EYE Film Museum in Amsterdam. We manually went through the Eye's public collection and catalogued faces by passing them through an emotion detection algorithm. Cutting from one face to another, its uncritical selection produced a new portrait of emotional gradients moving in-between anger and happiness.
