Lend me your Face!
Participatory deepfake artificial intelligence art installation
Premiered as "LiveAct" in:
Lend me your Face! is a participatory artificial intelligence installation in which participating visitors' faces are mapped to videos of prominent public figures and displayed in 6 large projections surrounding the public. One still image is enough to produce the deepfake videos, with no prior modeling necessary.*
The visitor is confronted with a very personal encounter of how the most intimate and yet public part of the self, the face and the emotions it expresses, can easily be manipulated and placed in contexts out of their control.
* Lend me your Face! uses an open source DeepFake neural network framework developed by A. Siarohin et al,, with "deep-animator," a wrapper created by Dimitris Poulopoulos and extended by Christoph Clement.
Lend me your Face! premiered as part of:
