Are You Feeling Comfortable?

This project centres around our idea of comfort and the role of technology in our life. As increasingly we reach for the internet as an escape form the real world, how wide does our online footprint stretch? Can we ever know how much information about us is online, what it is being used for, and, should we be comfortable with it?

My latest exploration within this body of work has been attempting to visualise what our online selves might look like if they were to be created from the data that is available about us. Using a General Adversarial Network (GAN) I have been using code to teach my computer through Machine Learning and AI to generate new images of me through providing source images that consist of every image of myself currently on social media and online.
