This is the portfolio site of Dave Elfving. I'm an artist and arts advocate living in San Francisco.

My work explores the relationship between human perception and that of Machine Learning and AI systems. In short: I love mashing up data with traditional darkroom photography.

I'm also a volunteer and mentor, actively seeking teaching opportunities to empower others with tools for creativity.

I'm on the advisory board at First Exposures, a youth photography program based in SF. I also serve on the board of SF Camerawork and filled in as its Interim Executive Director in 2020. I often work on projects at Humanmade, and occasionally volunteer as a Teaching Assistant at Gray Area.
