The Neoliberal Dream is a video essay of the algorithmic intervention of an iconic photograph of the bombing of La Moneda Palace during the coup d’état in 1973. The image – in digital format – was intervened with the artificial intelligence „Deep Dream“. The algorithm performed a machinic reading, which implied the intervention and modification of the original image. This algorithmic reading became visible in a series of „pareidolias“ or alterations to the photograph. The image was subjected to the same successive process a total of 17 times, in reference to the number of years that the civil-military dictatorship lasted.
