The Zizi Project explores the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and drag performance.

Drag challenges gender and explores otherness, while AI is often mystified as a concept and tool, it is complicit in reproducing social bias. Zizi combines these themes through a deepfake, synthesised drag identity created using machine learning.

The project explores what AI can teach us about drag, and what drag can teach us about AI.
