New New New World (NNNW) is an artistic project of generative speculation, a transmedia ecosystem and a research by Arjan Guerrero from Media Forensis2 that investigates the practice of worldbuilding and the new insights that the BigGAN, Large Language Models or AIs in general add to the paradigm of images from a cognitive position that simultaneously intertwines image-world-objects-environment-language.

This solo show by Arjan Guerrero brings together several of the explorations, outputs and results obtained by experimenting and transiting continuously, almost like a video game user, in this transmedia universe called NNNW, a project that pre-presents the reality of a particular Virtual Material World, influenced and propagated by the transformations and traces of the current cognitive world.

As an open world, the NNNW was augmented by Pita Arreola-Burns and Elliott Burns through a text that accompanies the show, and Doreen Ríos through a mini-game running parallel to the exhibition.
