Aporetic Spectacle researches the changing nature of photographic pictures as extensions of human perception. 
The photographs are the result of repetitive parametric captures by a computational camera mounted below an autonomous drone. As latent images dissolve into data, the smallest deviation in the dataset results in an unconscious and uncontrolled distortion of traffic flow. The emergence of the sign of a hidden and imperceptible infrastructure is also a metaphor for the need for photography to have a physical basis, even for disembodied computational photographs.
