Pareidolia

Pareidolia is a work by Driessens & Verstappen.

In the artwork Pareidolia* facial detection is applied to grains of sand from the island of Texel. A fully automated robot search engine examines grains of sand in situ. When the machine finds a face in one of the grains, the portrait is photographed and displayed on a large screen.

Pareidolia was developed for Sea Art on the isle of Texel, commissioned by SEA - Science Encounters Art. The production was supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL. Photo Heleen Vink, SEA Art, church De Burght, Den Burg, Texel, 2019

* Pareidolia is an illusion in which the observer perceives something recognisable in something it is not.
