How can you be anyone in ZoomSpace? We will see how very recent (as of mid-April) open-source code [1] allows doing live real-time deep-fake in Zoom and Facebook Live. Where does this put us on the axis in between the promised cybernetic utopia and trolling potential: infinity!? Can this be a middle ground between online participation policing and personal privacy? A Significant part of the workshop is a hands-on jam, where we will create deep fakes [2], using online tools that do not require prior coding or machine learning know-how [3]. We will also practice playing with live avatars in zoom [4]. This tutorial is will be focused on applicative and creative aspects.
