The work stages a speculative dialogue between two AI entities – a Discriminator and a Generator – engaged in a discussion about the meaning of reality. Generative adversarial network (GAN) is used both as a building material and as a narrative device for the video. The work addresses the consequences of the usage of new technologies in our society: the rapid achievements in the past decades had transformed the way we spread information and think about politics, shaping alongside even the structure of our reality and the concept of Truth. Whereas technology itself is not to blame, the urgent question is about the methodologies of our practices, and the perils of relying too much on the new “intelligent” tools.
