New production, Ancestors has started taking shape this autumn – we are generating visual simulations of future human generations from audience members. Ancestors is continuation for Captured (2021), diving deeper in the narrative potential of digital doubles.

Ancestors, a new immersive project co-created together with Steye Hallema, combines face capturing with GAN networks. We are very happy to be part of Sundance New Frontier Story Lab line-up this year. Ancestors generates an imaginary family tree synthesized from the faces of the audience, narrating a speculative fiction about the future of human kinship and reproduction.
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.

Oioicollective received funding from AVEK Creademo to produce a prototype from Cosmetic Space research project, which we have initiated together fall 2014. Cosmetic Space is modular and portable 3D sensing/projector technology, which illuminates space and people with interactive ornament.
Cosmetic Space is a collaboration between me and OioiCollective.
