I am invested in examining Provisional Realities. These realities are formed as a result of natural language text being automatically generated by algorithms on everyday platforms. This text may appear plausible and believable, but its provenance is often obscured or non-existent. Human engagement with generated text provides provisional realities a form of authentication and validation. I pose that utilization of technology generating these realities risks homogenization of human creativity by ceding the human voice in favor of predictive algorithms.
