The Medium Is The Message:
An AI-Powered Séance

Participants spent some candlelit Halloween time together with a generative séance: conjuring up artificial intelligences with the minds of Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley and Edgar Allen Poe to aid them in writing a spooky “exquisite corpse” story together using Laika and our AI medium artbhot.
Then, while the veils of reality were still gossamer thin, we crafted a new Major Arcana tarot card for the frankly bizarro aeon we live in now, together with the spirit of occultist Aleister Crowley.
Each person's presence is their signature, and what we crafted in the communal workshop space was co-authored by all attendees. Any text in red was generated by AI, and the tarot card image was created using Midjourney. .
