Electric Dreams - Roya

Select Framing options

Electric Dreams started from a lucid dream and my journey in recreating it. Exploring what influences dreams, I mused about the person featured in the piece and to what degree she existed - If she did at all.

The creative process reached a tidy circle when I began experimenting with AI to create people to feature - these models exist, but only in the dreams of AI. It became clear I was playing with the imagination of a machine, much like I was with my own lucid dream. These artworks are the Electric Dreams between AI and myself.


“Fake realities will create fake humans. Or, fake humans will generate fake realities and then sell them to other humans, turning them, eventually, into forgeries of themselves.” - Philip K Dick
