The God-like X-Ray-type vision views its subject as a dense scannable; a constellation of whichever fibers and particles the scan will successfully detect. Scanning someone with no scanner, by collecting information (physical traces, digital data, objects, documented experiences, etc.) is a vetting practice. The abstract scan detects surface-level information and reduces the human subject to a set of information. The vetting process is completely accepted and considered an inherent part of job-application processes; human instincts and “gut feeling” have been outsourced to something just a little closer to an algorithm; something we can trust and essentially blame for potential mistakes.
