Witness a Winnipeg that only exists in the digital brains of Artificial Intelligence.
Hofnik, the digital artist, prompted different generative AI platforms to create, modify, and reconstruct Winnipeg attractions, with a twist.
With each iteration, the AI models learn from their predecessors, building upon their successes and failures to generate increasingly intricate and realistic representations.
While some may see this virtual world as a mere novelty or entertainment, others recognize the potential for deeper meaning and connection. It also serves as a testament to the power of technology in bridging gaps and fostering empathy across diverse communities.
Perhaps, as we navigate the complexities of the digital age, we'll come to realize that both versions of Winnipeg—the real and the virtual—have their own unique beauty and significance, each worthy of exploration and appreciation.
HYPER is a digital art collective with the mandate of empowering the community to learn and investigate interactive immersive arts and technology.
HYPER runs a conference annually in the fall, where digital artists, professionals and enthusiasts discuss and share projects, virtual reality experiences and more.
