What If Malta became Atlantis? Malta.AI Reimagines Malta Underwater

Jul 5 2023 Share

Malta has had a long connection to ancient mythological islands, with mentions of it making appearances and having mentions in old tales of sea-faring adventures.

And now, local AI artist malta.ai has reimagined the island as the long lost city of Atlantis, in collaboration with Colour My Travel.

The images, generated via artificial intelligence, shows the iconic Maltese buildings, balconies and streets submerged underwater as fish make the residences their new home.

This would of course mean that our beloved islands would have been flooded in a cataclysmic event – not exactly something we want to see happen.

But armageddon aside, the visuals are definitely something we can admire. What do you make of this?

Parent company to Facebook and Instagram, Meta, announced that it will be launching its rival app to Twitter, Thread, by Thursday 6th July. 

The app is already available for pre—order on the Apple App Store and will be linked to Instagram, with screenshots showing a similar format to Twitter.

It is a “text based conversation app”, promising to bring communities ‘together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow.’

The announcement of course yielded some jabs from Elon Musk, owner of Twitter, with him and Zuckerberg making headlines a few days ago about a potential cage match. 

Twitter has just experienced some internal turmoil after going through an ‘outage’ over the weekend, with the app announcing that the site had imposed temporary limits on how many tweets users are able to read while using the app. 

Would you be using Instagram’s ‘Threads’?

The NGO and local fashion designer repurposed a trawler net Zibel had collected in Comino over 4 missions during one of their various clean ups and eco-activism events in Malta.

The piece was made by a whole heap of trawling nets that would have otherwise been left to damage the sea bed of our islands, entrapping fish and polluting the seas around Malta’s islands. 

Instead, the initiative made sure to promote sustainable fashion, showing that even these potential hazards could be turned into something beautiful and of no harm to local environments and biodiversity.
