This series of generative videos was produced with Artificial Intelligence based on datasets of plants with offensive and prejudiced names for women, Blacks, Jews, indigenous people, Roma, Sinti and Caló (“gypsies”). Flora Rebellis is based on a technique conceived by the English scientist Francis Galton (1822- 1911), creator of eugenics, to photographically synthesize the generic profile of populations he considered harmful to the progress of humanity, such as Jews, criminals and people with disabilities. In this series, this same exercise points to a type of reverse engineering. By letting Artificial Intelligence search for internal patterns among the different plants inside the same category (Jews, women, Blacks, etc.), it blocks the program from arriving at a uniform result, encouraging it to rebel against its own rules of operation.
