True Fake

Part Two | Virtually Yours

Social networking, micro-blogging, and dating apps among other forms of online presence made way for new avenues for constructing digital identities and practicing de-personalized communication, enabling larger digital networks built around individuals. As a consequence, one’s personal narrative becomes linked to vast social, artistic, and political dimensions of the virtual world. Chris Marker’s Level Five, Alison Nguyen’s every dog has its day (2019), Micaela Durand’s and Daniel Chew’s First (2019), and Jesse McLean’s See A Dog, Hear A Dog (2016) examine the blurred division between the physical and the online worlds. They reveal the complexity of digital identities, while investigating the potentials and limitations of artificial-intelligence-driven communication with the digital Other.
