I´m media artist working with image and interaction. My tool is computer vision and I´m interested in how machine shapes social relations. My artworks generate new narrative interaction between people, I explore possibilities of human-machine-human collaboration. Scientific research on perception, vision and AI inspires me, likewise everyday observations about human life in the age of machines.

Captured – Storytelling with digital doubles

Currently many apps allow people to create a virtual likeness from themselves for fun social media purposes, but can digital double became an agent in a narrative simulation? Captured explores digital doubles as actors in a collective scenario depicting social injustice.

Captured is an immersive experience, which captures your face and creates a new identity for you in a collective scenario taking place in virtual world. Captured enables people to step into virtual world as a digital double, making them actors and spectators in the same time. The doubles participate in a simulation depicting an unsettling cyclical performance of social humiliation, each taking different roles in the so-called bullying triangle, consisting the bully, the target or the bystander.
