I downloaded all of my Snapchat memories from my phone from September 2016 to March 2020. Snapchat memories are images that the user saves, which is stored for eternity. My dataset consisted of about 1300 images. Then, I created a model with StyleGAN in Runway ML and printed the output. My memories generated with machine learning, devoid of my identity, invade both my digital and physical spaces. The liminal spaces contain references to the pandemic.
What is the distinction between experienced and social media memories? If we delete social media, what type of silence do we seek?
