XR Experience → Kiss Crash

3 Kiss Crash

The installation triptych "Kiss/Crash" employs AI-imagery to explore themes of desire and the expanding gap between real experience and artificial representations in the digital age. The interactive experience consists of three related works that use AI to augment, subvert, and negate the iconic image of the Hollywood kiss.

Using a queer lens to appropriate a classic Hollywood aesthetic, the work places AI within the history of image-production technologies meant to incite and homogenize our desires. In the process, it reveals the nature of AI imagery and hints at how our most intimate desires will continue to be stretched and shaped by artificial representations at an accelerating pace.

Kiss/Crash will be exhibited as an XR Experience Special Event at SXSW in an immersive room-scale installation.
