Core Echoes examines a possible future where humanity as we know it has long since disappeared, leaving behind an empty architectural husk. We are left to discover the innerworkings of this foreign looking landscape. Has humanity abandoned reality for the virtual, or were they wiped out by a mass extinction event? Skyscrapers tower over a multi-layered city, dominated by strange machinery and chaotic wiring. Remnants of this world are laid bare like the bones of a long extinct animal, stripped of their initial purpose.
The end of the experience is marked by a series of interlocking geometric shapes surrounding a glowing core similar to a Dyson sphere, pointing to a potential energy harvesting mechanism.
The Texture assets used in this project have been generated using Stable Diffusion 2.1, bringing into question the perspective of the neural network on apocalyptic scenarios.
