    Abstract Summary:

    “The Unknown Person” uses mythotechnesis as a fictioning method to re-live a brutal incident in the artist’s family history under colonial rule. Employing machine learning processes and facial recognition techniques, the artist interrogates surveillance and social control systems to explore the fiction of the self, data, and liminal spaces.
