EPIPHANY: this reality does not exist

© Libre AI and aurèce vettier

EPIPHANY is a project that leverages Artificial Intelligence based on Machine Learning to create realities that do not exist and push the public to question what they know. Through a narrative and fine-print that draws on the avant-garde of Surrealism, it explores the production of fake news and the way we accept a fact as real, to finally induce a realization of the truth. 

The project simulates how society can fall prey to misinformation / disinformation and how this can harm minorities in particular. It also offers a defense mechanism against false realities by stimulating a critical response from the public. 

The main outputs are: a body of work that showcases events that induce an epiphany, but which have never happened; and an open source tool for artists, which does not require coding skills to achieve high quality aesthetics.
