Imagine Dragons: AI

Interesting in many ways but notice how we are essentially witnessing the hyper-inflation of a space of human phenomenology, experience and culture. We are reproducing ourselves, our cultures and our expectations in ways that primarily accelerate the reproduction of those selves, cultures and expectations. It is not as though AI is solving the mysteries of the Universe here – it is being procedurally refined to persuade us to suspend our disbelief in the artificiality of the facts with which it presents us. In this sense, it is all quite eminently narcissistic – we generate and validate our own selves and systems of belief in and as the technological heuristics through and by which we do so.

Even as we fall backwards down the rabbit hole, we barely notice what is happening… art is never just art.
