'THISPERSONDOESNOTEXIST' is a generative audiovisual work that explores the uncanny, accountability and imperceivable work. Its title is taken from the website of the same name www.thispersondoesnotexist.com.
Unreal AI-generated people trained off of datasets provided by the performers are pressured into being. With faulty voices and malfunctioning faces they protest their existence, origin and autonomy to the founders of the tech start-up who made it possible for them to come into existence. The identities of all involved converge in surprising ways as meaning is learnt and rebuilt.
