Deep Decisions? investigates deepfake technology in music videos, deconstructing its mode of production, its potential of replicating existing cultural and social biases based on the data fed into the generative adversarial networks (GANs), its copyright controversy and impersonation danger, and speculating about its future development in terms of artistic value and media impact.
The research includes a growing database of articles and music videos that will be extended with new material generated through deepfake experimentation, as well as interviews with sociologists, journalists, filmmakers, deepfake designers, and archive experts. Deep Decisions? will take the form of a video essay telling the multi-layered story of deepfake technology in music videos through fictionalisation and synthetic media imagery.
