‘Puddles’ are 3D printed sculptures of a latent landscape generated by machines’ mis-recognition of street puddles. The inverted reflections of surroundings in the puddles are sometimes
interpreted by machines as part of their perceptible reality. I borrow this cognitive imperfectness of artificial intelligence as a potential way of seeing, in which it bypasses human ontological
understanding of our surroundings, thereby revisiting the daily corner of the environment we are within.
