PHOTO, 2017

This publication features only images -- images where the faces of people within certain images as determined by the machine are obstructed by a black circle. Not too long after flipping through the first pages of Photo, it becomes evident that not all faces have been obstructed, and in some cases, black circles obstruct elements other than faces within the composition. This is one of the more baffling instances of machine error throughout the series of publications as the instructions and parameters given to the machine seem straightforward: detect only and all faces and put black circles over them.
