For years, I’ve been interested in traveling to the shipbreaking yards in Alang, India. I had planned to travel there in 2020 but unfortunately it was logistically impossible during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
    I had spent months pre-visualizing the images I wanted to make for this project, so when AI text-to-image programs became more accessible in 2022, my first instinct was to try to use these tools to create the images I never made.
    These images were all made in August and September 2022 using Midjourney, an artificial intelligence program. These programs use machine learning to understand massive amounts of images and their associations with text descriptions and metadata. This series is currently in progress as I continue to develop my prompt design in a way that comes closer to my vision for the works.
