UNINVITED Stills: Fight/Flight 3
About the Artwork
The NFT before you is part of UNINVITED project. Started as a film, it depicts an alternate reality as seen through the eyes of CCTV and AI. Images hijacked from thousands of unsecured CCTV cameras from all over the world are the basis of this work. These images were sorted, analysed, interpreted, and optimised by a set of deep learning algorithms and then orchestrated into a horror film: "An invisible networked super-organism oscillating between anxiety, lust, and horror. Described by the artists as 'a radically new creature looking at the world and nothing makes sense,’ the synthetic organism apprehends the universe through millions of hallucinogenic virally abused (CCTV) sensors. Thompson & UBERMORGEN’s life-form continually evolves by using human and machine learning. It defines its own existence and distributed agency through undergoing fear, instability, aggression, and vulnerability." For this first set of NFTs, the artists have used a scene from a section of the movie - "Fight/Flight > Human" and fed it to yet another AI ("Deep Nostalgia") in order to animate the AI-interpreted faces in the found CCTV footage. This set of 3 NFTs construct a triptych of something that never happened with people that don't exist. This is an edition of 1/1 plus 1 AP. This is part 3 of the triptych "UNINVITED Stills: Fight/Flight".
