CAPTCHAs in Real Life


(Video Link)


German artist Aram Bartholl often juxtaposes online life with real life, as seen in his giant Google Maps indicators and actualization of World of Warcraft avatars. One of his recent projects is to place CAPTCHAs -- the images of letters and numbers used to prevent computers from creating accounts with online services -- in public spaces. Bertholl places them next to graffiti tags because graffiti, like CAPTCHAs, are codes that can only be read by certain people. The project is called "Are You Human?"

"Does he not realize its to stop bots not people who aren't human. Watched about a minute and he actually thinks there are people who aren't human going onto sites that require captchas"

I can't find anything in his statements that implies this.

NotBansky pretty much summed it up for me. Put them near doors or ATMs, etc., as if pulling something from the online world into the real world.
