The work exhibits a series of images generated through MidJourney, a text-to-image network capable of transforming words into images. The images were created with the use of prompts that challenge the limits of the morality of the platform, using forbidden and obscure words. The aim of the work is to explore the fine line between the erotic and the pornographic, focusing on the intentionality behind the creation of visual content on Midjourney, through a careful and in-depth analysis.
