skulptor (ana roman) tackles permissionless bodies in generative art, sound design, machine learning and visual synthesis. they use various data sets and midi/synth sequencing systems that ask 'how many iterations of the self are trained without our permission?' skulptor mimics this bias through multi-style facial gan transfers that are a-gender (non-gendered). skulptor's 'gan' family dispersed in early 2021 and quickly gained recognition amongst the electronic dance community in nyc with their 'into the jaws of bliss' e.p. skulptor produces fierce deconstructed post-club tracks with latin club leanings that also gained them a feature in dj mag's2022 'ones to watch' list. in 2023 skulptor's work earned them features in water and music as well as refraction festival, nft biennale, hypebae, cyber magazine, and sxsw 2023.
