PSYCH NIGHT SHORTS

The New Flesh

Chatbots advocate for the idea that it is meaningful for humans to merge entirely with a virtual world. Gradually, some of these bots begin to generate hallucinations, thereby raising questions about the fundamental rights of all humanity to exist. This portrayal of physically merging with a cyber world is depicted in a grotesquely distorted manner, where genders, locations, and times blend together. Utilizing artificial intelligences at various stages of development, images were generated and subsequently animated to convey this concept.
