The possibilities, limitations, and responsibilities that come with instructing both humans and computers how to see stand at the core of A Well-trained Eye. The exhibition considers the potential to classify and surveil that we have coded into our AI technologies, looking closely at the biases that underlie data collection and analysis. Encompassing different media—drawing, photography, video, and installation—the artworks on view examine the reciprocal relationship between human and computer vision; they interrogate how technical systems increasingly mediate our relationship with ourselves, the environment, and to one another, fundamentally shaping the way we see.
