Valentina Ferrandes is a London-based, southern Italian visual artist and media designer. In her works, she blends a technology-driven approach to image-making with archaeological findings, archival found footage, documentary and electronic music. She creates poetic narrative strategies to investigate potential new worlds between past and present. The script for Daaphne was written by AI GPT-3, prompted with excerpts of Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Artificial intelligence and CGI propel the ancient Greek myth, Apollo and Daphne, into the present-day, evoking the never ending struggle between humanity, nature and technology.
