By Maya Man

Fake It Till You Make It presents the generative art collection of the same name by artist Maya Man. Borrowing from the bubbly language and pastel aesthetics of text-driven Instagram graphics, Fake It Till You Make It scrutinizes the promotion of wellness, self-care, and confidence on social media. Every image featured in the book was generated with a custom JavaScript-based algorithm written by the artist. The book acts as an ode to the Art Blocks Curated collection, showcasing all 700 editions in glossy detail along with essays, discord logs, poetry written with the output, source code, feature analysis, and a carefully curated selection of large-format spreads. It features contributions from Ann Hirsch, Sofia Garcia, Biz Sherbert, Terry Nguyen and is edited by Adina Glickstein.

Online, these types of Instagram posts survive on likes, comments, and shares. What do I believe? becomes What do I want to appear to believe? Fake it till you make it! Maybe your dream life lives here: In a digital, fantasy world where the algorithm plays god and loving yourself feels like looking into the light of your screen.
