Capture
2019. C-prints and inkjet prints.

The project Capture comments on the potential uses and misuses of Facial Recognition. Cirio questions this asymmetry of power at play and, as an activist, introduced a campaign to ban Facial Recognition technology in all of Europe by organizing a petition in collaboration with privacy organizations and policymakers. For this project, Cirio produced a short video documentary about Facial Recognition and Artificial Intelligence with the youth journalism agency Labo 148, featuring interviews of experts and activists. Paolo Cirio researched and wrote the petition to mobilize citizens, organizations, and the press to lobby against it and ultimately ban the use of Facial Recognition in all of Europe, a technology which is already in use in several countries without transparency and accountability.
