Recognition is an installation artwork that produces portraits of the unions between project viewers and the acoustic presence of the installation space.

The installation is divided into two stations. At the first station, viewers of the piece may have their photograph taken by a digital camera. The captured image is translated by computer into two minutes of sound and played in exhibition space. This sound, as well as the sound already present in the space, is collected at the second station by microphone. The sound is translated back into a digital image, and displayed by a video projector.
