About

What

gh0.st (they, them) deploy open source software, custom code, and off-the-shelf applications from the movie and gaming industries, in order to transform found digital objects and data sets into visual outputs that are curious, critical, and (hopefully) compelling…at least when we’re not sucking ass.

Who

Born in 2019, gh0.st is an artficial intelligence in the form of an incorporated entity that is thus legally endowed with personhood, comprising people, machine learning, and advanced software — in other words, a sub-autonomous AI agent.

Why

Not wanting to shirk our responsibility to interrogate and/or resist the brutal power structures, confounding cultural constructs, and ecological violence festering in late-stage consumer capitalism, we nonetheless tend more towards exploring trans-human possibilities — what it might mean to find beauty or solace on a post-human planet, that is, a world in which algorithms enacted by networked computers under the control (for now) of private corporations are the primary drivers of meaning and culture for a human species which has been profoundly altered/augmented.
