"Prove you're not a robot" is an ongoing series by intermedia artist Eric Juth that uses dataset images from a now defunct version of Google’s “reCAPTCHA” system as its source material. The artist arranges these lo-res images of street numbers into compositions that allude to abstract painting, modernist design, and collage. By extracting these once commonly encountered images (which, to this date, have all but vanished from the internet,) from their utilitarian context and presenting them as works of art, Juth’s collages prompt the viewer to consider the temporality and circulation of digital images, particularly those that are linked to machine learning, automation, and surveillance.
"Prove you're not a robot" will be on display in the Mary Davis Holt Back Gallery at Salem College in Winston-Salem, North Carolina from February 11th through April 28th, 2019 with an opening reception held on February 15th. Juth’s art is available for purchase and through the duration of the exhibit 50% of the sales will be donated to Girls on Fire, the Triad’s all-girl FIRST Robotics Competition Team.
