We are today in the age of man, the Anthropocene, an age that marks man's undisputed control of the earth. About fifty percent of the world's soil compounds are made up of man-made materials. We argue that there is another compound that we cannot sense in a substance, one that exists in space with its own laws and scale that a person's brain is unable to process.

Every minute, hundreds of thousands of images are stored on hardware and code lines, a kind of visual memory of the world around us. This memory is us, the human visual experience in a uniform and infinite space. The lonely person will never be able to grasp the expanding void of digital waste, but perhaps a few lines of code can illustrate how we look on the other side of the mirror, how artificial intelligence reads the general picture, the wide digital space for its own insight.

What will trigger this reflection?
In this project, we collected data and images from social networks. With the help of manual work, we have analyzed urban plans, schematic plans, doors and windows and created a number of databases. We put the same repositories into GAN (artificial intelligence) systems, and tens of thousands of the resulting products were processed using parametric tools to make 3D objects and images.

The objects, which represent the essence of visual memory repositories, which were photographed by tourists and residents of Tel Aviv, were processed so that they could be felt, and felt as existing. But the question that is asked at the end is, does non physical architecture exist?
