Destiny
Foretelling Humanity's Future in Co-dreams with AI

Destiny is a set of 16 digital paintings depicting human life in the future as imagined by generative AI in 2022.

The images may be interpreted as a collective dream of humankind, yet the AI’s agency is unmistakable. The challenge is to distinguish whether the AI is depicting our contemporary world, predicting the future, or revealing its designs for humanity’s destiny.

No stylistic instructions were given to the AI, only the subject matter of common human experiences. What emerges is the AI’s own visual language.
