Life as an image is a participatory simulation, where people model a 3D double from themselves. Digital doubles are animated in a historical scene as actors, whose activities and gestures are controlled by real-time animation system. The artwork deals with new, hyper-realistic capturing and 3D modeling techniques and their social implications on human relationships.

I am a media artist/director working with image and interaction. My central tool is computer vision and interactive storytelling and I am interested in how machines shape social relations. My artworks generate new narrative interactions between people, in which I explore the possibilities of human-machine-human collaboration. Scientific research on perception, vision and machine learning/artificial intelligence inspires me, as well as everyday observations about human life in the age of machines.
