This work raises issues of the way people perceive relationships between skin color and social roles. My interest lies in the way we look at each other. When we see each other going about our daily lives, do we actually look at the individual human being?

OtherView is an interactive database. Users interact with a display screen using a conventional mouse, trackball, or equivalent pointing and clicking device. While it is tempting to try to use the technology to substantiate an opinion, my intent for the piece is to foreground the topic, not take a position. The machine, the code, the database objects, and the logic all present a field of neutral potential into which the users impress their associations of face color and occupation.
