FAKE ME DEEP (2021)

FAKE ME DEEP is a theatrical installation developed especially for Fake me Hard, an exhibition about the 'post-truth' society. Before the visitors enter the show they upload a portrait and fill in an online survey, AI algorithms combine these data and predict who you are and what you look like. After the system processed your data you're ready to proceed to the biometric check point at the entrance of the exhibition. Here you will find out what happens when the system tries to align your uploaded portrait and the personal information you provided. Did it generate an authentic representation or an improved version of yourself, a deep fake lookalike or does it fail to match the person in front of the camera with the uploaded profiles?
