Criminal Data

Paolo Cirio’s Criminal Data consists of a video essay and accompanying statement that probe the process and impact of the online dissemination of mugshots and digital criminal records. Mugshot websites have become profitable businesses, collecting arrest photographs from county police websites, storing them in searchable databases, and then charging people for the removal of their images. The photographs are also used as training data for artificial intelligence developed for the purpose of facial recognition.
