IT’S NOT YOU IT’S ME

It’s not You, it’s Me

This work is not about AI, but about the occupation of digital space. It’s not You, it’s Me was part of the exhibition You & AI, Through the Algorithmic Lens (curated by Irini Mirena Papadimitriou) that took place in Athens in June-July 2021 and was organized in Athens by the Onassis Foundation. It is an art intervention taking place simultaneously in the media, online, and as a big scale, site specific installation. The piece investigates how AI is changing the dynamics of self-representation and identities, and how technological mediation produces its own types of performativity and practices of othering. Through a communication campaign, the project invites members of the audience to post a selfie by attaching to the #greece2021 – this is an existing hashtag, part of a media campaign with the mission to celebrate the 200 years of modern Greece. It’s not You, it’s Me occupies that very same hashtag space but instead, presents a collective snapshot of an “extended demos” consisting of both real and fake intensities: citizen selfies are mixed with decontextualized faces from other humans posted by globally distributed micro-labor force, as well as synthetic faces of non-existing humans posted by programmed bots. The durational video work, presented through a large-scale screen installation, invites the viewer to negotiate meaning through different distributions of reality over fakeness in the latent space of a nationalist fiction.
