Go Fake Yourself!

January 2021

Go Fake Yourself! uses deepfake artificial intelligence technology to animate single photos of faces with facial expressions and body language "borrowed" from driving videos of public figures. With deepfake AI technology, the face - the most intimate and yet public part of the self - and the emotions it expresses can more and more easily be manipulated and placed in contexts out of the control of the "lenders" of the faces themselves. Upload a photo of your face to generate 4 private deepfakes. Part of 'Imagin(in)g Networks' programme.
