This installation shows elements of the artist's research into the desired features of press photos and can be seen as a visualisation of a popular news image algorithm in development. It functions as a mirror of our own behaviour since both humans and machines tend to prefer those images that resonates with images that are already stored in our brains or databases. For example, the western tradition has a preference for one or two main character in a photo.
