Step Right Up
That old dude digging a grave in the Pease video totally creeps me out. ;)
Great perspective. With the recent popularity of AI being used to generate fan-fic (like Balenciage x Harry Potter), I think we'll definitely see the use of AI tech to bring fictionalised spaces into reality. Infinite fan-fic, not just to play with it, but to also make it more real. eg, the feeling of being present in the fictional world like an instagram influencer would be present in a far-flung travel destination. It is used to Instagram the fictional worlds essentially.
"... the various avant gardes of the 20th century were already exploring the structures that enabled and constrained their ability to express ideas, the relationship between mechanism and meaning."
