KAPPCHA is a redesign bordering on parody of the “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”, otherwise known as CAPTCHA. Everyone is familiar with the task of clicking squares and typing out distorted text to prove they are not a robot. Yet this begs the question: does our humanity boil down to our ability to identify a fire hydrant? How long can these simple tasks deter robots when Artificial Intelligence is ever advancing? This project is an exploration of these questions as well as an elevation of the boring CAPTCHA test for humans to enjoy, and robots to challenge.
Teresa Ueunten is a multimedia artist from the Bay Area currently living in Los Angeles. As a firm believer that “specialization is for insects”, she chose multimedia as the loophole to specialize in as many things as possible. She works with digital photography, graphic design, 3D modeling, UX design, animation, and computer programming. Her works often represent a convincing reality, only to be taken to the fantastical and absurd. She hopes to continue to create realities and fantasies in many more mediums as she explores the intersection of art, design, and technology.
