  6. Greece 2023

    Drawing inspiration from Borges' exploration of infinite knowledge, "Aleph" unveils an ever-transforming city, an artistic representation of how AI constructs its own world. The city's shifts and changes echo the boundless potential of AI to shape reality according to its digital dreams. At its core, "Aleph" captures the essence of a new narrative era—a fusion of philosophical contemplation and technological ingenuity. This animation encapsulates the profound connection between Borges' cosmic musings and the emergence of AI as a conductor of change. The monologue, prompted by Dimitris Agathopoulos and crafted with the aid of ChatGPT-4, is conveyed using an AI-generated voice.
