UNSTABLE EVIDENCE

Our image is our identity. We use it in social media to signal our beliefs and values.
We proudly post when we act. Our videos and photos say “we were here and this is what we believe”.

But imagine if your image was hijacked and swapped into videos of events you condemn. Perhaps you are an antiracist, imagine seeing yourself taking part in a white nationalist rally. Or maybe you are a Trump skeptic – how shocked would you be to see yourself storming the Capitol? Right now, this kind of AI-enhanced synthetic media creation is still complicated. But the technology allowing anyone with a computer or mobile device to perform these sorts of sophisticated manipulations is just around the corner. In a social and technological ecosystem of increasing mis- and disinformation, Unstable Evidence hints at what the world might look like when the documentation of your own actions becomes so easily manipulated.
