All the Lives

The immersive installation «All the Lives» allows the audience to virtually experience themselves in alternative life situations. After the audience has their image taken, it is integrated into five short films using a deep fake algorithm. This allows the audience to see themselves in a synthesized reality of life, for example, as senior citizens on the terrace of their sunny beach house or sitting alone at a table, trapped in a dreary office or as movie stars besieged by flashing cameras, or as athletes pummeling a punching bag. «All the Lives» is a philosophical machine that brings opting for a certain way of life, with all its limitations, into sharp focus while at the same time offering a projection screen for the self and potential alternate identities.
