The internationally renowned British rock band’s recent music video accompanies their song SCRIPTVRE, from their upcoming album THE ALCHEMIST’S EUPHORIA.

BA (Hons) Photography student Kieran Cook worked alongside director Rory Woods and a team of creatives as an AI Artist on the project, developing the band’s vision to battle AI synthesised versions of themselves:

“A metaphor for the post-internet/post-modern ages penchant for rehashing and digitalising anything it can, establishing Kasabian’s reputation as true originals.”

Kieran developed his approach as an extension of his practice while studying for his BA (Hons) Photography degree, blurring the lines between organic photographs and artificially synthesised imagery.

“This approach was originally based on still images, utilising existing skills I had developed as a photographer. By inputting my own images into artificial intelligence and utilising animation, I could edit my images in imaginative & surreal ways.”
