OKLYN s/O Systems is allegedly developing an artificial intelligence-based news service focusing on culture, fashion, and society. The objective of the project is to directly compete against Conde Nast’s vogue.com.
« VOGUE tells people what happened, OKLYN’s objective is to instantaneously tell them what the data means. The greatest utility you can provide is meaning. VOGUE is fast but the future belongs to the ultrafast. » STEVE OKLYN

OKLYN s/O Systems [analysis]
Everyone and everything that participated in this FASHIONWORLD program already happened.
The event and the participants have repeated the program thousands of times. The constructed experience through multiple replays has reached an experiential horizon line where the data has falsely interpreted the information as real.
When observing the flow of data from outside its range of control and after successive layers of analysis OKLYN concludes that the data is irrelevant.
