This project is my thoughts and experiments on the current hot topic of AI. As someone who usually gets into creating art for video games, I have seen many discussions about AI painting replacing game artists. I constantly questioned myself: will AI really replace humans? This question was the starting point for the beginning of my project.

My performance practice focused on some embarrassing and silencing scenes and movements. I believe these gestures of ants in one’s pants moments can better convey my view.

At the same time, I attempted to train ChatGPT, developing a "ME", telling it about my life and my way of thinking, constantly correcting the robotic responses it gave, and using this "ME" to create a completely fake social account.

In the somewhat comical atmosphere of this project, I still try to find the answer to the question: will AI replace us?
