In LightsOut, I utilize machine learning to render visible the intangible state of America's labor force. The term lights out manufacturing refers to a fully automated factory that requires no human presence on site, operating without heating, air conditioning, lunch breaks or unions. Similarly, the portraits in Lights Out are not real people, rather, they are deep fakes created by artificial intelligence utilizing a neural network. During this virtual presentation, I will be showing the majority of Lights Out while explaining the science that went into its creation.
