UNTITLED
ME



Close to me, but... My portrait reduced to its structre and re-created from features of a million faces I never met.

Want to own a piece of me?

■ Forging my new identity. Now it gets (un)personal. I used a machine to forge myself a new identity. The machine (DALL-E) interpreted some of my personal documents, from legal to private and  produced a statistical version of me on the basis of other people and landscapes.


- Installation C-Prints
- Participatory Configuration
- NFT

I used a machine, a so called picture generating Artificial Intelligence, to create a new identity. This new one is in relation to my old one, but filtered by visual patterns the machine learned from a collective non-consciousness, the internet. 

First I selected documents, from legal to private ones, to function as blueprints for the forgeries. The machine interpreted these in terms of its training data, which it pulled from the open internet.

There is also a pure digital version minted on tezos (NFT).

Forging my new identity!I have to face it, my diagnosis!

■ Participatory Configuration
Participatory configuration questioning originality versus statistical mean. AI forgeries of documents of all kinds (driver's license, passbook, or vacation photo) will be fabricated. In this way, a wall full of statistical approximations of an audience that may have been present is created.
 

■ Is it ME or an misunderstanding? The interpretation of my portraits via a algorithm trained on landscapes. What is the membrane which contains my behavior? Where are the borders of the system ME within a certain environment? Which is the distinction, that defines ME as a “two-sided form”?
