Séance Affliction: Self-Portraits while Possessed by Ghosts
You may have heard of science fiction, but I am cursed with a Séance Affliction.
I am a descendent of Mary Eastey, one of the women killed during the Salem Witch Trials, and I create a series of "Séance Afflicition" self-portraits while possessed by ghosts as a reminder of how strongly the dead still influence the living. Each portrait is created in a trance-like state, with the help of a team of zombie computers, using machine learning, convolutional neural networks, reverse image recognition, DeepDreaming, and other home brew occult computer sciences. Each portrait shows roughly half of my face, half of the ghost of a dead historical figure, in the style of a dead artist, created on the anniversary of their death.
The good news is now when someone asks you what your favorite artistic medium is, you can say "Eric Millikin is my favorite artistic medium."
