2020 – video series / video installation – video: HD (portrait format), loop

In the video series „inv.img“, algorithmically generated facial patterns tempt us to overinterpret an (apparently) shared rhythm. Hallucinations of a facial recognition system (false positives) make up the data sets of artificial neural networks that predict these synthetic faces as mimicries of human facial expressions. Through processes of data optimisation and cleaning, originally unique variations of shape, proportion, expression and movement are thus reduced to representative models.
