Publisher's Description

Edition of 500 copies.

False Positives is about intelligent surveillance systems. These are cameras that are said to be able to detect deviant behaviour within public space. False Positives is set around the question of normative behaviour. It aims to raise this question by basing the project on eight different anomalies. These so-called anomalies are signs in body language and movement that could indicate criminal intent. It is through these anomalies the algorithms are built and cameras are able to detect deviant behaviour. The eight different anomalies were pointed out by several intelligent surveillance experts with whom the artist collaborated for this project.

Shortlisted for the 2018 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation First PhotoBook Award.
