The agents (2023) is a work that questions the contemporary machine for living. In a near future, real estate ads are generated by Artificial Intelligences. Descriptions and photographs are repeated and merged in a uniform cocoon fantasy. Digital filters transform the faces of real estate agents, who take on the stereotypical appearance of animated characters. The cocoon is so soft and colorful that it turns into a nightmare.
