Supercomposite is the alias of Steph Maj Swanson,
a multimedia artist and writer based in Uppsala, Sweden.

Steph is best known for her story about the AI-generated woman Loab, which Forbes praised as “genuinely interesting and unsettling” and which The Atlantic dubbed “a form of expression that has never existed before.” A multitude of other media outlets have featured Loab, including Rolling Stone, Der Spiegel, Artnet News, BBC Radio, and the ABC. To learn more about Loab, visit or read the original viral Twitter thread.


Steph’s other writing was deemed “disturbing” by The Washington Post, while her body of video and still image work was contemplated by Galleries West as “the merging of repulsive with beautiful.” She is also a Vice contributor.

"Loab sparked some lengthy ethical conversations around visual aesthetics, art and technology."


Smithsonian Magazine

"The thread, with its genuinely interesting and unsettling elements combined with the mythos of an actual demon lurking within AI algorithms, is something that will probably have the movie rights auctioned off to Netflix by the end of the day."



"Loab might seem like standard creepypasta, but her origins are a whole lot more mysterious."


Rolling Stone
