It’s a dream-inspired multi-media installation made of salami sausages hanging from the ceiling, in company with laser printed AI-generated visuals presented in an overlapping stacked papers notion. The visuals presented are mixtures of a several sections of the narratives, which include countless unsettling glass jars of flesh and blood found in grass, newspapers and TV news reporting the “incident” in different international languages, and the mass production shots in the meat factories and local grocery stores. As not readable as they are, the AI-generated letters and characters on the fake newspapers as taglines form a barrier to prevent people from clearly perceiving and recognizing their supposedly familiar languages, in order to create the undertone of anxiety and uncanny as most nightmares feel like.
