Realness Scars, 2022, 6:39

Realness Scars is a video essay written and illustrated entirely by neural networks. The unabridged script was written by OpenAI's GPT3 language model, based on a shorter text written by Any Angel (@any9angel). The illustrations were composed by Midjourney, which generated the images in direct response to the text.

"We find ourselves in a landscape where representation has been passed over for realness scars - where traces of simulation have been absorbed by infrastructures ready to burgeon outward from within it."
