Dr. Heather Dewey-Hagborg’s trans-disciplinary bio-political works include: ‘Stranger Visions’, 3d-printed portraits derived from genetic material – hair, cigarette butts, chewing gum – collected from public places; ‘How do you see me?’, images identified as the artist’s face by artificial intelligence, probing the structure of facial recognition systems; and ‘Lovesick’, a sculptural installation of glowing vials containing a retrovirus that alters human DNA to increase the production of oxytocin – the hormone responsible for empathy and bonding.
Oan Kim’s ‘Digital After Love’ is a series of algorithmically altered iPhone images, inspired by old black-and-white family photo albums, a meditation on love and oblivion, a formal reverie on the idea of digital ruins. What will remain of our intimate diaries, now entirely contained inside our mobile devices, when time begins to do its erasure work, when people no longer have names but their affection remains?
