The Photo Object

[person_by] Martine Stig

November 2019

The Photo Object is a visual experiment in which I take pinhole photos and then pass them through the face detection and image recognition software. Investigating which changes the photographic image has undergone in the transition from analogue to digital. Where at first glance only the carrier has changed, the entire medium has in fact been transformed. Function, application and meaning have changed completely, but without losing its aura of authenticity.

Martine Stig
Martine Stig (b. 1972) is an artist based in Amsterdam. Point of departure in her work is the photographic image; the voyeuristic act: photography (verb) and the autonomic product: photo (noun). Whilst using the medium (and moving away from it) she researches its role in the perception of reality.

In this research I focus on the changes the photographic image has undergone in the transition from analog to digital. In fact, the photographic image has become bilingual; it is both image and data and can be read by man and machine.
