Fading the Boundaries

By Valtteri Nurminen

I believe that there is no such thing as free will. That’s why I believe that nothing is actually natural or artificial. If humans are only a product of evolution, and we didn’t “choose” to create artificial things (if there’s no free will), then I think that makes artificial things also just a part of natural evolution. This is why I believe that everything that’s considered artificial is in reality as natural as anything.

I have created five images with artificial intelligence and mixed them up with five real photographs. My goal here is to Fade the Boundaries between natural and artificial.

Can you make the distinction between the two?
