Digital Superimpositions

The series of stereotypes consists of various digital superimpositions. Every digital work is the result of 20 to 40 pictures algorithmically merged into a single image.

Similar to Sir Francis Galton’s technique of composite portraiture from the 1880s, the digital fusion of images is an experimental approach to examine stereotypical features of the selected input. By repeating similarities of each picture in stack, individual details are getting lost when merged together. The results are physiognomic studies on the defined groups of people that unveil their collective face.
