In order to create this series of portraits, I assembled pictures of my parents as young adults in a software using A.I. This created an infinite number of A.I. generated portraits including my parents’ facial features. An infinite number of possible outcomes for my own face, of hypothetical other me’s. I called them “The Losers”.

I thought this series as an ode to randomness. In a time where we try to control everything and even started to create babies à la carte, randomness is a source of magic in life that I think is necessary to preserve.

The series will include 618 portraits (the numbers of my birthdate), will take 9 months to create, and will be finished on the day of my 33d birthday, ending the first 33 years cycle of my life.
