I have a habit of these late night walks. Walks that are always long and always lonely.


I've been doing them for so many years already and I almost never miss a night. These are my nights out. And ever since I began, I've appreciated them as in integral part of that personal space of quietness and tranquility, which I find increasingly needed in this way too noisy world of ours.

I’d never talk to anyone or anything when walking in these late nights. Just the pulse of my feet, my mind, and whatever I choose to listen to.


I look at the following as a document of both our time and my thoughts right here, right now and the state of this technology – Spring and Summer of 2022. All of the images were created with my specific prompts and descriptions of the mood, composition, lighting and the general concept of the scene, everything using my words only. The visual interpretations of those words were made by AI. 

All of these were created with Midjourney – a neural network that is currently booming, spring and summer of 2022.


I spoke to it in terms of the soundtrack in my head – be it inspired by the music I’d listen to, emotions I’ve experienced during or the thoughts I found needed to be comprehended in these late nights in Sofia.

Even right now I feel these algorithms are able to capture the essence of it in a way, which is yet to bring truly widespread discussions.

I think that looking back at this post will bring a lot more context in the times yet to come, but everything I’ve shown here truly resonates with me as of now.

We created these sitting on a log in Borisova Garden, I was listening to the Cure’s Bloodflowers and I wondered how the emotions this album and song always bring in me would look if mixed with Michelangelo’s Pieta statue, since I was just back from Rome and happier days..

We created these images thinking of Songs of Faith and Devotion. Ever since I shared my first experiments on the social networks, they found an increasingly growing interest. It was suggested I tried Depeche Mode feeling as well, and the truth is that within this week I was playing them quite a bit too. I love this album, so first of all I tried to incorporate this dark and highly influenced by Christianity at the same time stylistic, where there is no clear good and bad, only raw emotion to contemplate on… I also wanted to direct AI to some of the lyrics I’ve been playing quite a bit, keeping both the emotion and the atmosphere in the direction I’d imagine this album to be.. 

“I’m not looking for a clearer conscience
Peace of mind after what I’ve been through
And before we talk of any repentance
Try walking in my shoes
Try walking in my shoes


“I would lose my way again
Be led hopelessly astray again
Just so I could pray again
For the mercy in you”


“When here in my mind
I feel inclined
To wrongly treat you unkind
I have faith I will find
The mercy in you”
