Simulation (Jeroen Cluckers, 2021)

An AI-model creates 3D pictures, based on 2D photographs. By altering the code of the model, the fabric of this 3D synthesized reality is revealed. We find ourselves on a threshold between realities, photographic and synthetic. Between memories, registered and artificial.

Concept, editing, postproduction: Jeroen Cluckers
