“Second Self”: The Art of AI and Augmented Relationships
Second Self is an ongoing art and science project directed by world-renowned beatboxer Harry Yeff aka Reeps100. The artist explores his/the human voice beyond the limits of what we think possible. AI reflects every tone and vibration of his voice, as if a higher entity is talking back. His performances almost feel like a religious experience becoming tangible.
Second Self is an exploration of live performance designed to integrate machine learning and emerging technologies as a practical artistic tool and to raise awareness about technology beyond the academic, technological, and engineering demographics through the medium of film and performance.
