Alternative Realities

As we watch the Russian military invasion of Ukraine, it’s clear that the inaccessibility of objective information – alongside outright disinformation – places a large proportion of Russian citizens in an alternative reality. Here, Russia’s troops are liberators rather than aggressors. It’s a similar situation with the Russian army itself; when going to war, at least in its early stages, soldiers were either unaware of the true geopolitical situation or believed in an alternative narrative informed by disinformation campaigns. Alternative Realities is an installation that consists of found images and a video of fallen Russian army soldiers. Referring to the usage of various algorithms in disseminating disinformation on social media, I employ machine learning tools to delete the soldiers from these images.
