Affe mit Waffe (ape with gun) is a symbiosis of human and machine. The original artwork is based on a stencil inspired by the works of Banksy and Blek le Rat, but everything else is decided by our artificial intelligence, the Real Vision Bot. The AI determines all the parameters which are necessary to create the image (e.g., color) based on the emotions and buzzwords obtained via natural language processing from the most recent interviews on the Real Vision platform. Each time there’s a new interview on the platform, a unique ape will be minted until a total of 250 apes exist.
Despite their violent appearance, each ape’s intention is to bring people together. They’re tough on the outside, but soft on the inside. The raised gun shall motivate us to overcome our differences, triumph over our primal instincts, and solve our conflicts peacefully.
The Twoquants love the community spirit that comes with this digital artwork. Each ape will be an entry card to our inner circle, and although it’s still an early project, we are already full of ideas and potential use cases for each of the 250 anthropoids.
