WORLD’S FIRST AI-GENERATED PLAYING CARDS
In collaboration with Red Black Inc, we proudly present the World’s first A.I.-generated playing cards, Singularity (2022). To leave as much of the design work up to AI, both the box and the cards were created using a variety of early-stage text-to-image generators and tied together by Adobe’s built-in AI features.
However impressive this new technology is, it is by no means perfect. Fairest had to create hundreds of images and spend days refining and tying them together to achieve this result. We experienced the image generators as just another tool in his tool chest. Just like a spray can, Photoshop, a camera, or a simple pencil. Nevertheless, this development will imply a significant shift in the creative industry, just like the introduction of creative software and digital camera.
The box box gives you a glimpse into a futuristic post-singularity World where AI dominates. The face cards feature semi-humanoid Kings, Queens, and Jacks, who rule over the four post-singularity empires represented by the Aces. A world in which humans are diminished to mere court jesters to these new rulers. The deck contains small AI-related easter eggs.
