Cassirer deal with four themes which appears in The Immersive projects
“A Gesture for a Mammal” 2023, recent artworks, In the broader context of the art world, AI-generated art raises discussions about the nature of creativity. By utilizing AI to depict mammals in over-tourism scenarios, these artworks serve as a poignant reminder of the fragility of our planet's ecosystems and the urgent need for environmental stewardship.
These AI-generated clips of mammals in over-tourism scenes concerning climate issues may be visually captivating due to their novelty, surprisingness, complexity, and ambiguity.
These clips challenge conventional notions of art creation, blurring the lines between human intention and machine-generated results.
The deformation of mammal depictions in these AI artworks may evoke references to Francis Bacon's deformed portraits but with a fundamental distinction: the deformations in AI art are not intentional expressions by the artist or the machine but rather a result of the machine's inability to imitate human representations perfectly.

Challenging societal norms and boundaries, it confronts audiences with highly uncomfortable and unsettling themes, creating a visceral emotional impact.
