All the Lives (2021–2022)

Mixed Media Installation

The immersive installation All the Lives allows visitors to virtually experience alternative life situations. First, an image and a voice sample of the visitor is recorded, and then these are integrated by way of a deep fake algorithm into short films in which individuals see themselves as part of a synthesized life reality. Seeing ourselves in a new role encourages us to question our attitudes toward our own lives while at the same time conveying a better understanding of the social and political dimensions of these state-of-the-art technologies.

Project in collaboration with Nadine Cocina and Paulina Zybinska.
