Stumbling upon the ontological intersection of drag with machine learning, Anne Ampersand, a computer vision specialist looks at adversarial images synthesized from both found and personal annals. Turning away from analysis of data bias issues, she seeks moments in which the unincluded manages to make an appearance through difference. Like an air bubble stuck between signal and noise, she feels its presence as a movement trapped in digital matter. Its foaming, popping and rippling in different rhythms.
This work was developed during a year-long residency in 7ica GMK offspace throughout 2021. A work in progress was initially presented as part of Sonja Pregrad’s Utopia of Extended Here and Now event in Ljubljana June 2021. The piece was primarily shown under this title at the Post-Yuth Biennial in Podgorica, Montenegro.
