Artificial intelligence, computer vision, state-of-the-art imaging computer graphics, interactive and immersive media, and high-precision 3D to 5D printing technologies are revolutionising how art is conceived and created. Deep Fakes: Art and Its Double is the first exhibition to address this present revolution.

Until now, these new art-science creations have remained unrecognised. Exhibition curator and director of EPFL Pavilions, Sarah Kenderdine, has given them a name: ‘cultural deep fakes’.

Through 21 installations at EPFL Pavilions, visitors are offered an exclusive encounter with an array of art works and scientific inventions, 12 of these specially commissioned for the exhibition.
