These prints are composed of 288 cropped images of Uhura from the television show Star Trek. Each frame of the first season is analyzed with facial recognition software, and found Uhura faces are either inscribed with tattoo-like circles representing individual facial detection algorithms, or scaled, cropped, and center-aligned via sophisticated image-processing routines.
To offset the explicitly computed nature of this work, the images are aligned on broken grids, and floated on an organic background of silvertone metallic or lapis mineral pigments.
