If the Evening Standard was a walking, talking person, what would its first impression be of you?

A young man's face was used as the lead image in a story about a spate of crimes. Despite being cleared of any involvement, his picture was later used again anyway. Did his face meet the Standard expectations of what a criminal should look like? This installation uses a facial comparison system, from photos in used in the Standard’s stories, with sentiment analysis of its texts, modelling its biases so that you can experience the Evening Standard's opinion of you, based on your face.

  • I am a multi-disciplinary designer, working in moving image, sound, 3D, photography and graphic design, and specialising in physical human-computer interaction design. I am interested in the overlap between individual behaviour, technology and systems, whether emergent or designed. In my practice I explore circumstances we commonly encounter, and by making these familiar activities uncanny, drawing attention to how we both shape and are shaped by these systems.
