Now, on to PIXELS OF YOU! PIXELS OF YOU takes place in a near-future, where AI is ubiquitous in the technology that helps keep the world running. Fawn herself is an AI, given form in a chassis with a human appearance. By contrast, Indira is a flesh and blood person with an artificial eye. They both see the world differently, and thus their eye for photography is different in form and subject.
The goal with PIXELS was to depict two characters navigating an evolving relationship as they negotiate the world around them. This book took a lot of research! AI is in use everywhere, to a degree that is impressive and frankly disturbing. We were constantly updating the manuscript because every week brought fresh news regarding AI research. Our approach was to nod at many of these realities without dwelling on most of them-- we wanted to create a textured feeling, where people who live within a system do their best to get by. Our focus was character, so the world-building exists to inform that.
If you have something in particular you'd like for us to talk about, feel free to ask on twitter! Thanks for reading!
