DescriptionA visual essay on the proliferation and mediation of the digital body, "Figure 1." is an attempt at locating the virtual body in the processes of production, circulation, and consumption of images concerning continuing computational advancements. Conceived in part using state-of-the-art techniques in real-time computer graphics and machine learning, "Figure 1." contemplates the affective and ethical implications of technological overreliance in the production of visual cultural artifacts. As such, it probes the ensuing relational and sentimental shifts in the viewership of corporeality as it humors the public fascination with interpolative, inferential, and statistical means of generating bodily depictions.
