Harasser I 📢
Perfecthuman Harasser I is a machine that catcalls passerby humans.
It harasses those who it deems as perfecthumans with perfecthuman features.
Gender minorities are often subjugated to undesired attentions and interactions on the street: what if machines became the same crude vultures that harass other humans in the public space?
Perfecthuman Harasser I questions the aesthetics consciously or unconsciously applied by human researchers to computer vision algorithms. It explores how machines apply these aesthetics to observe organic creatures.
