In Daria Rastunina's series GHOSTLY, the artist studies subjective recollection of the image of reality, as well as the importance of the present moment. Each is a code, a fragment of a larger whole. Rastunina investigates the states and deformations that modernity is experiencing and considers the impact of artificial intelligence on the reliability of the environment based on personal and historical experience.


GHOSTLY is part of the exhibition RECOLLECTION. AI AND MEMORY presented by EXPANDED.ART in collaboration with The NFT Gallery at their galleries in New York and London, 11 April – 13 May 2023.

19 artists explore the idea of further challenging the concreteness of human memory—personal or collective—through creative collaboration with AI.

Memories are nebulous. Scientific studies and phenomena such as "The Mandela Effect" have shown that humans rarely recall things in their unbiased exactitude. Artificial Intelligence already assists human memory in the form of predictive text and GPS navigation. One would surmise that there exists a role for AI when it comes to supplementing even more complex memory.
