The Making of Self

“In our early discussions about the Self video, we were talking about the concept of identity in the digital age, how your face is not only your key to a lot of the media you consume, it represents who you are – or who you pretend to be in your online personas.

One of the most intriguing new developments in recent years have been the ability to create deepfakes, where a computer runs a machine learning algorithm to predict what one face would look like in another’s pose.

Anyone with the right tools and ability can now turn themselves into anyone else, so what does that mean for identity?” Miles Skarin
