Redundant Assembly is an interactive installation that uses biometric techniques to detect and record the faces of passersby on Sainte-Catherine Street. The portraits appear on six storefront windows, the live images of participants perfectly overlapping with the faces of previous visitors, creating composite portraits that are constantly fluctuating between one person and another, past and present. Facial recognition technology is often used to identify individuals, but here Lozano-Hemmer uses it to opposite ends, concealing private identity in a collective portrait.

Presented on the Pavillon Sainte-Catherine de l'UQAM from August 30 to October 15, 2017, as part of KM3.

Concept, direction: Rafael Lozano-Hemmer
Programming: Stephan Schulz
Production support: Karine Charbonneau, Miguel Legault, Guillaume Tremblay, Kitae Kim, Marc Lavallée, Carolina Murillo Morales, and Andreas Schmelas

Partner: UQAM
