Esiste un posto dove... Conversazioni con oracolo digitale
Esiste un posto dove…Conversazioni con oracolo digitale is an illustrated collection of short stories that aim to narrate possible future worlds. In the past, the future was interpreted through oracles, signs, and prophecies. A similar process takes place today through the interpretation of massive amounts of data. These data can be collected, analyzed, and read by an artificial intelligence, which creates predictions about tomorrow. The project focuses on this ancestral concept of predicting the future through the use of cutting-edge tools. Each text contained in the book is constructed through a “dialogue” with an AI that can complete the narratives, getting hold of a series of data, articles, and books from which it learns. Each story begins with an incipit written by me and then completed by the AI, establishing a back-and-forth that leads to the construction of visions of possible worlds. The AI becomes an oracle. Through the interaction with a human partner, it elaborates vivid images and stories that are both fictional and realistic.
