Logo.Hallucination (2006)

Logo.Hallucination deals with the question of privatization of the glance in relation to collective hallucination: an image recognition software based on neural networks, continuously monitors the images circulating on the Web looking for hidden logos, and sends cease & desist mails whenever a copyright violation is detected.
