For a long time, the Polaroid was considered an analogue and authentic one-of-a-kind. But nothing is real here: these people never existed. They are outputs of an interaction between me and the artificial intelligence Dall-e, which I “fed” with terms. This resulted in strange figures that shudder at second glance. Where does it lead to when artificial intelligence can generate deceptively real historical-looking images? Does this change our view of the past?
Here, AI-generated motifs and Polaroid photography form a symbiosis as a possible past.
