Building 1 / It’s Time We Talked
This installation features a pair of devices known as Quantum Communication Crystals which allow the user to communicate with a version of themself from another quantum timeline. In other words, the crystal allows you to speak with another you—one who made different decisions. Always wondered what your life might’ve amounted to if you’d taken a different fork somewhere along the way? What might your life have been like if you’d married your High School crush or gone into math instead of music? The quantum communication crystal allows you to find out! The pair of crystals displayed show a conversation between the artist and the artist’s deep fake double. A generative adversarial network or GAN was used to create a deep fake video of the content for the 2nd crystal, producing a video in which the artist (themself) has never said the words you are hearing.
