Ariane is a deepfake video of Ariwasabi, the world’s most famous unknown model from the stock image
website Shutterstock. Billions of people see her face on a regular basis but no one knows who she
is. An image ghost. In a world where image broadcast is dictated by its usage, reality proves out to
be schizophrenic. Machine learning is leading us to a future where new words can be put into
speeches. Social media profile images and celebrities are transformed in to porn stars and video
footage can be altered to put people in places where they never been. Leading us to believe that an
event occurred in order to influence the opinion and feed one new type of invisible and unknown
violence. For our pupils to get in touch with reality, which at the slightest miscalculation
reveals itself to be pre-designed, eye drops are necessary.
