4 flat screens, website, program: Generative Adversarial Network based on StyleGAN, programming language: Python 3.6


In the installation »FLICK_KA« – a photo booth located in the foyer of the ZKM – more than 50,000 portraits of visitors were taken over the course of 10 years.
These photos served as training data for the algorithm of the artwork »Flick KA AI«, which generates completely artificial portraits from the combined characteristics of all the people photographed.
Try it out for yourself and see if you can tell the difference between real people and artificially generated ones.
