“We all deserve to be seen in visual languages. We already have the tool, now it’s about taking action”

Could merging VFX and AI create a fully represented world? Kader Bagli certainly thinks so. Working at the intersection of creativity, imagination and technology, she is exposed to a lack of diversity on a daily basis. Our current visual storytelling landscape doesn’t celebrate cultural diversity across all layers of society – we are good at marginalising groups instead of normalizing them. But the good news is: we already have the tools to change that; we just need to put it into action to unstuck ourselves. 


With AI putting a halt to our lack of imagination and VFX offering storytellers new perspectives, the future looks hopeful. Because we all deserve to be seen — on screen and off — with dignity, humanity and no judgment. So, what are we waiting for if that’s what it takes to change our visual language to a more inclusive one?
