RAM_1.0 is a project that originates from the collaboration between myself and Artificial Intelligence. It’s a fictional narrative of my life, based on my personal visual archive, yet constructed and mediated by AI. The project explores the concept of memories and the importance of the construction of an archive within the digital realm. Focused on the interaction between images and text, I let AI analyse my memories to then reinterpret its captions and create new staged images. New fabricated memories take form as 5 different books and 5 slideshows presented on a modular installation. Floating between human and non-human, the dialogue between me and the machine originates and lets you get immersed in a new dataset of my memories through the gaze of technology.
