How To Be More Or Less Human

This book is made as a documentation of Max Dovey's performance How To Be More Or Less Human.

How To Be More Or Less Human is a performance investigating how humans are identified by computer vision software. Looking specifically at how the human subject is identified and classified by image recognition software, a representation of the human body is formed.

The reason for making the documentation in book form was to utilize the strength of the paper medium. Papers as a storage medium will last longer then a data file in this instance, as the changes in APIs and computer code will leave a digital file unusable for the future.

The black and white design reflects the contrast between human and nonhuman, as well as incorporating the typeface sans serif typeface Avenir and serif typefaces Georgia, as a contrast of cold corporate and the more human.
