Robo Resistant Alphabet

In the eventual war with our malevolent robot overlords, we will need an undecipherable way to communicate.

During the summer of 2016 I painted a series of 26 letters (the English alphabet) that could not be read by robots.

Because current image capture technology relies on lines created by value contrast (light/dark), I sought to use a palette of colors with similar values.

To further confuse the bots, I've hidden the letters within backgrounds of similarly letter-like brushstrokes.
