Creepy Portraits of Deep Fake A.I People: “This Algorithm Exists”

– To note however, that such people are not in fact people but algorithms, and that unlike pseudo-people do in fact exist and express real identity – that is, an often dangerous sociopolitical efficacy

And yet, one should be wary of taking such emergent / stuck on mathematical smiles at face value (minor tumorous outgrowths and weird skin folds notwithstanding) because right now ‘they’ are probably working in strict tandem with large faceless metacorps to silently and efficiently fuck you over in various, blandly terrifyingly-smart ways

America’s Best Looking Couple

in whats becoming increasingly common/ nonlinear series of public disorder incidents/ private cyborg rentacops called to yet another violent incident / simulation at strongarm burbclave today to deal with shooting / injuring of male portion of amerikas best looking couple

in statement written / directed by pr manager of one of victims / given by victim elf in nicely shot / well rehearsed holovideo paid for by station – barry sexbeef – more well known by ir handle captain handsome – said shooting was simply misunderstanding/ would not occur again

alleged incident took place at karls steroid n handgun store within clave

another citizen belonging to x closely knit walled community of glossy mutants deep into shopping / self love – private citizen jason ripnek stands accused of deliberately provoking mr sexbeef into fight – upon which ripneks barely concealed sentient pistol – 25lb model .50 cal k2llr 75 street annihilator given to all new burbclave members by loftleader industries for home protection – was quote accidentally fired into smooth freshly plucked / laser taut abs of sexbeef

only by good fortune / clean analytical insight of captain handsome did ey survive – for ed recently installed new set of titanium ceramic abdominal implants morning of incident/only $920,000 on special offer from loftleader – use code #fake on ir stations website for 20% off

police droids interviewed two parties over incident/ n turns out that at some point in argument at karls store ripnek took control of in store tannoy system using ir 1337 .mill grade haxx0r skillz gained by free online course / shouted /paid for transcript follows:

karl /store owner: eye met more intelligent shoelaces than ir buncha suntanned freaks – get heck outa ey store yer dumbells

burbclave citizen ripnek/ yo captain blandsome – ir hulk wife thing sure must get so sweaty during workout – x 6 inch flabia must give off bigger reek than tsukiji fish market in summer – x still bigger than yours when ir get pumped in morning mirror amirite

at x point other portion of sexbeef duo – pretty miss camilla deadsquat – allegedly threw ripnek over counter with one hand into pile of really cool looking foreign video space design magazines with those awesome postmodern typefaces – ey currently suing ir lightly for designer clothing damages / for mental cruelty ey experienced through being forced to try to read

update patch

parties involved have since made up / have amicably agreed to split any subsequent media profits arising from x news story 70/30 – after ir cut of course heh

after several suicides at burbclave caused by quote badroids featuring unnotable b-listers – viewers / fellow players no doubt feel clean / refreshed to hear about such exciting new/tm developments

  • harry has something of quote force of nature nature about ir as seen in rutger hauers character of hitcher
  • details – professional code of honour – style especially – seems vitally important for harrys character
  • slow train coming by bob dylan / red right hand by nick cave / bad seeds as harrys psychological theme tunes
  • harry derives ir nickname from fact ey enjoys playing what ey calls ir quote roulette blues on ir old guitar – especially for those ey got contracts on/ harry says ey sings for ey as n prepares ir soul to cross over to other side

to consider joanna newsom in many ways new ultimate walking vanity project – perfectly flawlessly sincere – hyper fey/tm /quaintly unconventional excessively refined/ precious – marked by foreboding of death or calamity ideology that might be termed sapokanikan ie blisteringly sweet ragtimey encomium to dark forces of false remembrance / deliberate forgetting creepy cultural accretion concealment of language as weapon convenient historical amendment conceited self erasure unimaginative distortion as aesthetic canonization of holy infantilization violent obsolescence of classy high times / wide eyed immortality of perfumed designer insanity in face of everything remotely human that actually matters – amerikan maul lift music in quote lite new age hell lite where everybody blissfully skips along blind bloody road to another fake apocalypse

Zack Brown: Potato Head Salad Kickstarter

in terminal zeitgeist where any turbid gwat can pop forth another unwanted designer zit on troubled backside of modern media – along pseudo humbly swaggers zack quote danger brown minor man of vanishing moment all fresh faced / fratboy keen – like ey just got through to next round of local blandly handsome contest

just look at ir/ look at zack

firstly ir parents labelled ir zack – crime against andor of reality right there with potentially disastrous existential consequences for local spacetime

todays starter for ten points zack – what percentage of dead persons brain has to be full of dim weasel piss in order to quote invent potato salad kickstarter
– guy smiley

x exact kind of effortlessly inane / stupefyingly irrelevant amerikan videodromic signal – which if n were to suddenly begin to play on screen set in back of seat of person in front ey would just know ir plane soon tocrash as x certainly prime candidate for undeniable proof nothing remotely intelligent lives on x flocking planet

ideology of kickstarter potato salad

quote/ ey hereby pledge allegiance to flag of kickstarter of amerika / to republic o cash for which n stands one potato brained nation under salad infinitely divisible with side order of lite beer for all
– kickstarter pledge

surely x all bit of harmless ultra capitalist fun in atomizing media sun right – right

notice in 404 video how /after awkward pause zack explains that money raised will all go to good causes

suddenly like gazelle from starting block ex democrat spin meister george stephanopoulos replies with ey feel so much better about x

consider x ideology of kickstarter potato salad right there – of privilege funding privilege

where already greasy hands exchange yet more greasiness – eternal circle jerk complete once

for george something about zacks little wizard media wheeze cuts little too close to ir unconscious bones – ie ey too suspects ir own potatoey greed / uselessness

ir too can exist as rich famous shameless media egotist with bleached teeth – sims with prime pr strategy – as long as ir seen caring about /vague things in life which really matter – tiny philanthropic bubbles / imperfections hand made by /somehow equally honest simple hard working peoples of – wherever

n wouldnt have mattered one iota if zack had started out to give any / all money ey made to charity

rather ugly point – that charities have to exist precisely because zack quote potato head danger / spaced out pimps that fund ir vacant vacations into hyper capitalist netherworld of innocent viral fun have whole sick game already stacked in ir odds from very beginning – mile high bowl of dog sick that stinks to plastic heavens

simply by funding ir all backers are psychologically poised to defend danger boy – ie attack others for questioning ir own seemingly natural right to indulge in ir idiocy flinging cash for cheap laughs saturday night college drunks at pole dance club

in once such startlingly aggressive display one pathological backer allegedly proclaimed ir giving buck simply for amusement / surrealism factor –

paraphase/ ey want to give big flock off to self righteous pissants out there

oh passive aggressive backer of allegedly surreal salad/ where art all these raving self righteous pissants of which thou speaketh with such impotent practiced menace

if anything whats actually surreal about zack / ir tasteless salad conception – that anyone finds anything remotely surreal or amusing about n at all

help zack live ir little dream/tm

pleased with elf little man
– roy batty

kickstarter salad/ x like something talented genius james franco might come up while on media toilet – simply for teh richboy lulz

of course equally talented amanda f#ing palmer agrees with potato head since media stunts like x keep ir / holy reptile l ron blumquist in red funding manner to which ir accustomed

of course deadpan non irony – that everyone who helps people like zack quote live ir dream already lives in exactly same simulated universe as ir – one of easy pink glow self satisfied ultra privilege where friends enjoy new houses featuring disproportionately large bathrooms – ir all stand around hi fiving/ unlike most everyone else are able to imagine whatever ir want to fill n with/ cocaine faeces smeared 100 dollar bills servant body parts potato salad – empty sum total of ir vacated existence – anything ir want baby

x trip all about ir / ir dreams ir way – ir flocking salad

hey internet
– zack danger brown

who or what might zack referr to here/ one wonders if ey remotely understands what ey dealing with – / what ey already fully immersed in

careful salad boy/ roman gladiatorial crowds were less fickle than todays undead social media consumers

another thing/ x guys name – probably already forgotten – seems now forever linked to potato salad

in fact in recent search for ir name/ nothing came up – unless one specifically added potato salad – x seems unfortunate

what zacks statement – that ey did n for pure enjoyment / silliness of life really means – ir able to do stuff like x because ey ultra priviledged life / system of global capital expressed as innate evil idiocy of internet enables ey to – such anti life consists of little but blind pursuit of pure salady enjoyment / savage hipster puerility

after all/ when ir already own everything everyone else needs but cant have – whats little scoops of potato salad between rich smiling friends right

x all so very clever so innocent / seemingly without consequence – so viciously harmless in ir automated assumption that potato salad kicksters seem so harmlessly enjoyable – which must at all costs / at all times be enjoyed utterly by everyone infected by such crass viral stupidity

zack has stated however what has allowed ey to have x little moment – whats sacred to ir – ir love to connect with people via sacred love

sounds like freaky fame based cult speak – casual head spinning delusions of salady grandeur from what fellow theorists in ghost in the shell term stand alone complex/ random – yet given strict coordinates of system / how n naturally dysfunctions – often inevitable emergent phenomenon

perhaps fact so many fellow players find n so easy to guffaw along at what seems mere bowl of potato salad itself seem violent dull sound of silent warning striking

fiver from good samaritan

satirical remix of soul suckingly self righteous article in daily torygraph [1] via robert what

A Fiver From A Good Samaritan

profits from x rat to share with charity for working mothers

consider some stranger on train who condescendingly praised mother with fiver for quote good manners revealed as middle class twat

enquiry in england is not whether woman has talents / genius or is kind mother – not that x might even be right question to begin with – but whether shes truly passive/ polite/ virtuous ass obedient to noble mens opinions in rat / science/ who bows gratefully before ir overwhelming fiscal potency/ unthinking pseudo generosity

if ir good little woman of stove / bedroom – if not she must be starved /via passive aggressive male acts of suffocating plastic kindness
– paraphrasing william blake poet painter / visionary

stranger on train who praised mother in backhanded complement style letter for quote good manners is revealed as rich samaritan ken slanders

father of one says ey handed sam welk message praising ir noble mothering skills on first great western service as shes quote great role model for ir dole queue waiting generation

ken slanders has revealed himself as quote mystery stranger who passed note to samantha welk

snooty bourgeoise train passenger – probably from first class compartment – who handed young mother anonymous condescending note praising ir as credit to ir generation of working class single mothers has said ey did n because what goes around comes around

what ey obviously means by x – even rich pinky skinned / ultra privileged feel humble enough to lower elves occasionally to pat lower classes on head as ir imagine ir sometimes deserve

ken slanders handed 23 year old sam welk vile message on scrap of paper ey peeled off bottom of ir bespoke shoe because ey was quote impressed by ir mothering skills as she sat cuddling ir three year old son ryan at crappy end of first great western disservice

50 year old father of one signed message from creepy man at table with glasses hat / stupid looking scarf with ir luxury montblanc fountain pen / handed n to ir like polite insult as she got off train from birmingham to plymouth at bristol parkway last thursday in rain

semi unconsciously offended by implication that she was both being quietly labeled quote working class/tm quote – also that she was being praised by some condescending toffe nosed upper middle class fart for merely doing what every mother does daily without unnecessary social commentary or privileged cultural rewards sprinkled from above

miss welk launched internet search in bid to track down mr slanders overstuffed / probably well overpaid nhs project middle manager from snobsworth in wiltshire

now hes come forward / disclosed ir smug unpleasant surprise at level of response to ir heart warming note – ie heart warming to those who have money to throw around like wealthy men who care not how ir give as tennyson said

ey revealed ey wrote said note because ey thought miss welk was great role model for new britain – that ryan reminded ir of ir daughter romanissa now 20 / how current ceo of fantastic new internet startup selling financial advice to poor / downtrodden via intrusive / innovative mobile phone ad pop overs

what goes around comes around ey told daily heil online

when ey daughter was 18 she went out on ir first night out in bristol for hotrods / drugs

n was new years eve / ey advised ir not to but she went

after she left she phoned ey / said shed got off at wrong station bristol parkway instead of temple meads / gabba club she was going to was by temple meads

ey was fretting because ey would already had bottle of gin / two viagra that night / ey couldnt come get ir because ey was busy watching intellectual hunk jeremy charles robert clarkson

luckily kind poor couple came to ir rescue / gave ir lift into town

she later lost ir ticket at home / rich anglo saxon man on horse carrying banner with english flag on n bought ir one out of ir own pocket

later she was on train platform / she was freezing when x same hero came to ir / gave ir jacket

ey said quote happy new year to ir / ir kin / let ir keep n

ey always remembered that / ey guess x paid off in end because here ey am showing world what generous person ey feel – as naturally befits ey class / fated position in honest d0g fearing english/tm society

including £5 note for miss welk apparently quote to buy herself pint because thats what ey imagines proles doing of evening – mr slanders wrote in ir message have drink on ey baby – ir credit to ir nubile generation

polite / humble knowing ir place in true order of things teaching ir little boy good manners that will see in right in correctly / strictly stratified society – where bs articles like those scrawled by daily bile are commonplace – just not quite as common as ir – ah ha ha/ little joke there

ey understand ir cheeky cockneys are famous for ir sense of humour

p.s ey have daughter ir age someone rich / handsome did same for ir once

hope when she has children shes good – that is as quiet / obedient / fiscally gracious mother as ir appear to be – at least for ir class

miss welk originates from peckham but who now lives in run down flat in plymouth – owned by greedy parasitical rentier capitalist who lives 2.5mill mansion on right side of tracks – said she was shocked when she first read what was written

when ey handed n to ey – as though wiping crap off ir manicured hand – ey said n had fallen out of ey bag so ey just said thank ir / took n from ir she said

but when ey looked at n / saw what was written ey was shocked

ey feel overwhelmed by elitist ideology of n all implication being that ir automatically supposed to be thankful humble / grateful for getting n

what bugs ey is fact ey actually threw money in with note

ey couldnt quite believe n

of course ey have put money in savings account for ryan now – ey thought that was best place for n

but x blind cheek of x nosey old fart stranger that astounds – to pat someone on head like father figurines of old / say ir quote doing good job – yeah probably in relation to rest of dirt poor single mothers ey / ir snivelling sanctimonious gang of daily hate mail readers detest so much

thats wider hypocritically unaddressed context really quote at work

moneys short for people nowadays – obviously because rich own n all – so consider for someone from elite income bracket to back hand ey fiver truly amazing – utterly understandable given type of incredibly unequal society ir /try to live in

of course ey want to put n to quote good use because fiver to person of ey low income / obviously of low class according to people like mr slanders – feels rarer than fat cat businessmen passing through threadbare eyes of tin needles

in any other circumstances – like those of social revolution on x dark / unhappy aisle say – ey would rip money in half / tell ir to shove n up ir pious rich perfumed samaritan backside

smug self serving arse baskets like that owe ey generation lot more than bloody fiver let ey tell ir

patronizing patrons indeed

queue moneys too tight to mention by simply /in red

consider ass bit set to zero – abst0 – by default

Dr. Doom: ABST0

abst0 – ideally useful measurement or social consideration

while abst0 commonly / simply implies avoiding being ass x actually closer in mercurial meaning to variable as yet undefined human metric – default friendly dynamic / relationship state – one of

  • sharing: spirit of free /gratis / libre non quantum participation
  • helpfulness: accessibility accommodation consideration symbiosis
  • nondoing: harmony non contention
  • entropy: all non things considered unequal impossibility of any reliable measurement of uncertainty in random variable /eg abst0

in which non quantum participation means holistic human channeling of fluid processes un splittable into ass bits/ co creation beyond concepts of quote worth or quote value

while abst0 only ever ideal or virtual state / unable to clearly set measure gain or reliably use – might nonetheless seem undecidedly non practical heuristic

to set ass bit to zero implies not doing anything to flip bit to one/ yet any attempt to actively set bit to 0 flips n automatically

public abst0 declaration is as follows: sorry if ir seemed ass just then – despite or even due to best intentions/ merely to signal already complex state of ir human affairs

figure most associated with abst0 – doctor doom – whose classic failed attempted to set or reset ass bit now legendary

though richards tried to warn ir about flaw in machine seeing ir calculations were few decimals off victor continued on with disastrous results

RND/ To imagine conceptual digital art, regarding contemporary Researchers:

Possible research modes discovered during course of daily lab work by / via Robert What – Freelance Postmodern Internet Theorist:

Akihiko Taniguchi Online

3072 × 3649 .jpg

Akihiko Taniguchi Online

Oh, to exist as a cool New Media Artist – ‘free’ to endlessly tinker with useless technology in name of something as deliberately vague as Art. To have one’s own virtual studio, make locally manifest one’s little digital online experiments, direct from a conceptual void of technological phantasy – with mildly squashy pears.

Fluxus Train

3195 × 1851 .jpg

Fluxus Train

Ding ding! All aboard the driverless Fluxus train to meta-critical New Media heaven – even though one has no idea / little but ideas concerning Fluxus.

Ideal / Idealized Price for such a Concept: £2.5M – contact Robert What for details.

Franco: Bad Conceptual Art

2290 × 3071 .jpg

Hopper’s Long Leg

In which the oblique, defamiliarized aesthetic dimensions of ambiguous interior fantasy, locally manifest on troubled morning seascapes of unstable postmodern verticality, or something.

No Right Click: Save Saaatchi Art

Official example art statement via Researcher Robert What: Conceptualized after being unable to right click / save architectural image on Saatchi Art Online; in which something about it however still smells like some creepy digital vampire, thoroughly deserving of a thick artistic steak. Ironically, such an image seems like their Gothic castle.

Rich Artists: Never Too Late

To consider a remix of an artful post about Adrien Brody by editor Alexander Forbes; photographer by Sylvia Plachy

3072 × 1728 .jpg

Rich Artists Never Too Late

Example Art Statement via freelance amateur postmodern internet theorist Robert What: Yeah I too often wouldn’t mind roleplaying the part of a rich artist – if only I could afford it;

While Adrien Brody no doubt is very nice, with detectable acting talent, consider the following poem expressing a small critique of those who may simply pay their way into the Art World:

Try as they might
Such gracious noble lords
Who idly lift their brushes
Think they then write or draw
They cannot; for who can wield a pen
When they feel bored

Such minds of leisure only
Can only express the trite
Those pretty knights who
Feebly lift their swords
To make witless thrusts
Against their artistic doom
Foiled by what their noble birth affords
Art, Art more fucking Art displayed
In far too many white & empty rooms

So doth fortune smile on
Those who own much hype or land
Yet frowns at depthless trivia from
Such dabblers’ soft, pink hands

At this juncture I would like
To drop such privileged art
In the midst of filthiest manure
– paraphrased via Fellow researcher Heathcote Greene

Robert What: Net Art Award Failure

AKA on *not* winning the (shitty) Prix Net Art Award, 2015

3072 × 3458 .jpg

Robert What Net Art Award Failure

In which the merest mention of rat (sorry, Art) – along with “Culture” – now makes freelance postmodern internet theorist Robert What queasy.

After a recent relapse back into near total alienation from constantly dull and arbitrary “Art” – consider an (unsent) torrent based nomination to the shit Prix Net Art jury, followed by a remixed response to their announcement of the actual(R) winner.

Example Artist Statement via theorist Robert What:

Robert What: A self assembling conceptual torrent based performance combining high quality 4k screenshot of the international Prix Net Art award homepage, plus a quote by an American ethnobotanical psychonaut; any resulting feelings experienced by fellow ‘researchers’ having participated in such experiment by simply downloading it.

We are discovering there’s an artificial angel within the monkey
– Paraphrasing Terence McKenna

More research at robertwhat.com

In November 2015, after extensive deliberation over nice wine delicious cheese niblets, the Prix Net Rat jury casually announced its second annual $10,000 Prix Net Rat would not be awarded to freelance amateur postmodern internet theorist Robert What.

Robert What’s ‘avant garage’ practice (allegedly originating in or near bike shed in an alternative 1979 Netherlands) in no way transcends traditional categorization using pseudo-diverse media in order to explore sociopolitical or technological themes, and only cynically reflects on broad cultural social effects of communication image processing technologies from performativity – if that’s even a word – distributing artificial social capital on social media to not completing staff banned Kickstarter campaign for hardware start up called Punch Out Kickstarter(TM).

His ‘work’ – whatever that seems – does not include slickly coded websites, trite performances, expensive routers, cool installations startups, armies of undead or manipulated found images frequently juxtaposing or consolidating quote technically dichotomized presentation realms.

Recent solo exhibitions include the CS:GO ‘noclip’ Hypertography exhibit [2]

What neither lives nor works in Berlin or Amsterdam – because he bloody well can’t afford it.

The Culturally sanctioned ‘official jury statement’ sounds like they should be wearing black gowns while passing windy judgement on what ‘Rat’ is this year.

The Jury looked at the specific role of Net Rat within some supposedly larger Rat context.

The main issue here – at least for them – was to emphasize the relevance of such a prize for works and practices made in the context of the Internets to highlight critical issues / developments in this much maligned field.

Net Rat has clearly not moved beyond the hip pink skinned media rat ghetto or Cultural colonialist vanguard of the global Capitalist matrix.

Ratists and Rat institutions of various disciplines and plumage are starting to explore fiscal possibilities of the Internets.

Importantly, The Jury feels Cultural development without the Internets is almost unthinkable at this point in time (they have obviously never heard of pulling plugs.)

The transformation of thee Rat field is often described in terms of post media or post digital / post Internet Cultural production – which seems complete balls of course.

While recognizing the value ($$) of these developments, The Jury thinks the Prix Net Rat should support Ratists who (somehow) critically engage with ‘core issues’ surrounding Rat / The Internets / with The Internets as ‘medium’ – which it isn’t – rather just another platform for endless self aggrandizement – a vacuous social network for likes / clickbait upvotes.

Special consideration goes to Ratists who use or quote reflect upon practices originating in the base culture of Internets; developers makers and hackers without whom ‘Internets Culture’ would not exist or without whom these cultures would be very bland *cough*.

The convenient fluidity of boundaries between research tech communities and questions of authorship / virtuosity and (urgh) ‘performativity’ of Rat in mediated environments are important aspect of the mediocre work of the winners of the 2015 Prix Net Rat award.

Robert What’s ‘work’ stays un-firmly yet non defiantly outside realms of contemporary Rat, but from a wobbly position profoundly misinformed by conditions of new media networks – technical as well as cultural social economical political networks.

What does not strive for ‘an honest respectful or un-embellished approach to materials conditions of the network’.

At the same time his work lacks humor, wit or critical commentary.

The scope of What’s work is unimpressive and reaches from informalistic yet sometimes bordering on interesting works, to extremely layered conceptual pieces suffering from mild Terminal Boredom.

From his early work in which he plays – idly – with elements of performance, to recent experimental RND projects in which he reveals fascination with anyone who (like himself) finds the history and economic context of contemporary researcher tools deathly dull.

The Network has not been What’s truer environment, meta-physically nor culturally.

What’s recently relaunched non-site at robertwhat.com seems in an depth investigation of underlying processes of virtual mis-production, for he too created an imaginary startup company last night in bed which produces some crappy video gallery widget – a useful tool for pink skinned Ratists of allegedly challenging copyright barriers between commercial play / researchers / formats of ‘the video real’ – a cynical Trojan horse to get Ratists(TM) back to work; basically, some lousy hardware screensaver – into collections and museums run by mechanical fools.

“The Work” barely highlights dependence of present day cultural production on chain of workers and processes; it makes Cultural production even less liberating than even The Jury presenting it / themselves seem.

Arbitrary Rat Statement example by the true winner (quote): “Some kind of stuff.”

Oh yeah its obvious you’ve really thought that through – you hateful talentless munt  *cough* not feeling envious bitter hollow or anything honest [3]
