CAPTCHA Paintings

Human Error (7"x6")

CAPTCHA Painting 1 (7"x6")

CAPTCHA Painting 2 (7"x6")

I started this series after encountering CAPTCHAS on several major sites including Blogger, Yahoo and MSN. These codes are used to prove that the site's users are human, and not a spam bot. The whole thing seems very "Blade Runner." It was fun to take this computerized humanity test and paint them in oils, an all-too human process. To read more about CAPTCHAS visit the Wikipedia entry and to see a CAPTCHA in action, try entering a comment.
