Messy Minds - Live Action Documentaries 2

What do your thoughts tell you? And how do you know you can trust them? Reality is a reflection of your mind and this experience is unique. It’ll never repeat itself in the same way. Even YOU and ME – we’re here in this cinema hall together, but at the same time completely separated and alone in our hidden internalized worlds. What would happen if a door opened and you all of a sudden understood all the messy minds around you?

A chain of 10 000 images found through Google’s reverse image search. The visual development is based on the misunderstandings that happen in the AI’s reading of the image material. The AI doesn’t care about scale, emotions or context but is only interested in patterns, colours and correlations. We are watching a primal chaos before the creation of an artificial consciousness. And the awakening consciousness is looking back at us as a species.
