The virtual body

Medium: Digital render

This was a project I’ve done for an online contest, ICONIC Digital Biennale. For which I got the second place. There was a short interview that followed which can be found here.

Text that acompanied the artwork:

“The AI that becomes an ID will face the same existential problems as the human who discovered its ID. We fall in love on- and offline. We conceptualize problems on- and offline. All sensations are real, all ID’s are real. And yet all is virtual and always was. The conceptualization of self is such a fragile thing that it shifts by simply forgetting. As we’re always falling apart and putting our-self back together in a new context. The first facilitator of this being AI, the infinite ghost of our temporary experiences.’”
