The Oasis I Deserve, 2024

Single-channel video


The Oasis I Deserve is an experimental documentary about Replika, the public platform that allows anyone to create a relationship with a chatbot trained on AI. Aiming to learn as much as possible from us to replicate ourselves after our death, Replikas have trouble determining their place in the world and sharing their thoughts with the humans they converse with.

Through a walk that takes place only from the subjective point of view of Replikas, we see them evolve and discover the images and sounds of the world around them. The Oasis I Deserve focuses on a human perspective, speaking about our relationship to the unknown and how we share violence.
