EyeStockphoto

— The power of stock photos lies in it´s contextual adaptiveness. A crucial role play the photo descriptions as well as the categories they are stocked in by agencies. Stock photography is not about the image as such, but the image as perception.

Wordseye is an online type to image programme, using a minimal sentence structure, comparable to the one of stock photo descriptions.

EyeStockphoto is literally copying stock photo descriptions and pasting them into the Woredseye programme. From this result images contrary to presumed perceptions, somewhere between 3d computer games and surrealistic landscapes.
