This video a part of my Master Degree at Academy of Fine Arts in Umeå, Sweden, May 2022.

Its form is unusual because it is written by me and an algorithm in real time. This means that the recording takes place at the same time as the text ’conversation’. As you see I’m using InferKit’s text generation tool. This program is designed and trained by large tech companies. The algorithm are already trained and do not learn from the inputs I give it. So, let’s see what data base it has.

How does it work? I type text and the algorithm generates what it ’thinks’ comes next. In that sense I’m a co-writer. Text appearing in green is the text generated by the algorithm and the plain text is what I am typing. Sometimes the generated text makes no sense, in which case we ignore it.
Let’s start!
