Breadmen. 2020. Digital Images. Machine Learning.

I thought it would be interesting to merge images of bread and businessmen. When you google search bread, only white images are found. When you google search businessmen, the majority of them are also white. Could these two boring forces say something about race?- EC

Image descriptions: Headshots and other medium closeups of men in suits in which their skin appears to be consumed by bread. Some artifacts from the machine learning process on Playform.io add a layer of pattern interference and give way to largely desaturated morphs of humans and bread.
