Faux News: Investigating Festival Reality

Faux News is questioning the role of media in the age of AI. It is a TV Show hosted by Kaunas 3022 local TV and radio broadcaster which will be available only within the area of Yaga festival 2024. The viewers will be presented with the reels from the memorable locations/events of actual places within the festival territory. These broadcasted reels will be diluted with AI manipulated or generated videos from real or non-existent similar looking places or events. The act aims to encourage festival visitors to go and discover those locations, fact-check, navigate reality through their intuition or alternatively just accept, neglect or gossip, thus participating in the construction of fake reality, urban myths and local stories. Faux News by its nature suggests that it might be biassed, politically engaged, disorienting or misleading, although the unexpected plot twist might even prove that the very opposite is true.
