SKHROL is a series of AI generated videos consisting “ Momono Aware”, “the skin dream” & “the error of calm technology” explore what anthropologist Natasha D. Schull termed the “machine zone”, a affective, dissociated state of calm she observed gamblers at slot machines entered while locked into a feedback loop at Vegas casinos. The works explore a similar phenomenon in the habit of doom scrolling, while using machine learning to create pareidolic AI imaginations of what these zones might be described as, as if reflected through a mirror darkly.

The works are available as NFTs at The Upside Space
