Mutated, dismembered, they become nothing but a container, a shape to hold other images.

Art is a collab of collage and AI by Katy Somerville and Kiki Ren, respectively
About the Author
J. Bird is a multidisciplinary artist from Montreal Quebec, Canada working in literature, music and drawing. They are primarily interested in exploring the uncontextualized, the ephemeral and questions dealing with the concepts of reality and phenomenology in day to day existence. You can hear their music, if you have the stomach for it, on Bandcamp https://shittybird.bandcamp.com/ , see their drawings on Instagram @ the_shitty_bird, read their crap right here and, soon, on their blog ehmorfuss.wordpress.com.
About the AI Artist
Kiki is best described as 45% Elvira, 45% Dolly Parton, and 10% Danny Devito. Though she’s always been a lover of all forms of art, technology has always been her forte. She studied computer science for four years before dropping out and coasting through life in various retail management positions. That’s until she found her true calling: being an embarrassment to her family online. When she’s not whipping up websites or blessing the world with memes and generative art she’s hunting for oddities at thrift stores or reading the most disturbing pieces of experimental fiction she can find.
About the Collage Artist
Katy Somerville was beamed into existence on a Monday night in the mid-eighties by stars, glitter, and a glorious Italian woman from a long line of very strong women. In the present timeline, she likes to drink coffee, pat any animal that will engage with her, make collages, and spend time laughing and finding moments of joy wherever she can with her partner and her goofy, lanky dog.
