Project.I trained a text model on secrets submitted to PostSecret.com and used it to generate machine-made secrets. Harboring a secret is something so uniquely human – it requires feeling shame, regret, excitement, so I was really interested in exploring what happens when it’s a machine creating them. I was also compelled by the act of confession, and the process of morality being judged under the eyes of a god. Some of the secrets in the video are computer-generated and some are mine. Knowing that, a similar process of judgement, determining humanity versus machine occurs. I tried to blur the distinction between person and machine more by generating the faces that appear in the video but using real human voices to narrate the secrets.
