Lend me your Face! (Facing the Choir)

Participatory deepfake artificial intelligence art installation

By Tamiko Thiel and /p, 2020
With Christoph Clement, technical collaborator*

Lend me your Face! (Facing the Choir) 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.

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! (Facing the Choir) 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.
