ABOUT

    In the surveillance capitalism society, AI that is seamlessly integrated into the social system, gains an “eye” as another person. We humans receive evaluations of others through the high-speed Internet in no time, and instantly transform ourselves.

    Even the physical body cannot guarantee the identity for seconds. 

    This bi-complementary relationship of “see / be seen” is one of the factors that accelerated the fashion after the emergence of the “Mode”, and it is inseparable for us today. 

    We A++ speculates and practices of the relationship between self-identity and body through a scope of fashion in the post-Internet age.

    EPOCH PROJECT

    With the development of AI technology, AI surveillance society has arrived. Excessive surveillance threatens the privacy of people living in modern times. In this project, we adversarially trained an AI model to generate specific patterns inducing AI to misrecognize, then created a camouflage garment using the pattern. We seek an alternative camouflage for the 21st century and aim to reconsider the relationship between the latest technology and our well-beings (in the AI surveillance society.)
