There is always more in us.
Unpublished Us is an experimental long-term art project, to establish a safe and privacy-preserving archive of unpublished self-images. It aims to document and archive the sides of humanity that are not subject to publicity. As such, it is also an invitation to see yourself differently, to open yourself to the possibility that perhaps instead of being something, you could be everything, instead of trying to find out and define what you are, you could be infinite.
The purpose of Unpublished Us is to collect, document and bring to public human expressions that would remain unpublished and -documented. This is possible through recent developments in computation. Machine intelligence has gained the ability to create new faces of people, in essence, selfies of people that do not exist.
Unpublished Us is initiated by artist Sami Lukkarinen and futurist Roope Mokka. It is produced in collaboration with cultural institutions and experts in technology, spatial design, and spiritual practice. Read more & contact.
