Freeda Beast – Bringing Things to an End

A music video clip for Freeda Beast created using various neural networks. The faces are generated using a pix2pix GAN from biometric face markers. The markers are directly controlled by the music itself as well as the cuts and effects. The various styles of the […]

My Artificial Muse

The first Mural/Fresco Painting designed by an Artificial Neural Network has been created, during a 3-day performance, at Sónar+D 2017 in Barcelona. Can a Muse be “artificial”? Do they need to be “physical”? Can a computer-generated Muse be as inspirational as a human-like one? By destroying the […]

Alternative Face

In Alternative Face I trained a generative adversarial network (a pix2pix GAN) to generate the face of French singer Françoise Hardy from a set of biometric face markers using several of her music video clips as the training data. The trained model then allows me to control […]

X Degrees of Separation (2016)

“X Degrees of Separation” is an installation and online experiment I was commissioned by Google Arts & Culture. It finds visual connections between cultural artifacts. It has been shown at Ars Electronica Festival 2017 in Linz.

Raster Fairy (2016-)

Working with large datasets of images one common task is to order or cluster them by similarity. Computer science offers a plethora of algorithms and tools to help with that purpose. A very popular and useful algorithm is t-sne which clusters similar items into meaningful […]

The Order of Things (2015)

“Ordnung muss sein” or “There must be order” is a much hated sentence German kids must hear often whilst growing up. Which is why many have a rather negative connotation when hearing that word – at least “order” is typically considered to be a pretty […]

Ernst (2015)

  Ernst (2015) is assembling elements found in public domain image collections to create surreal collages in the sprit of Max Ernst. Ernst on flickr

Porsche Black Edition (2015)

I was commissioned by Porsche to artistically interpret their Black Edition model. The theme I was given was the color black. In my interpretation I focus on the beautiful reflections that the elegant curves of the car create and wrote a live rendered particle engine […]

British Library Labs (2015)

Since the end of 2014 I’ve been involved with classifying the 1 million image collection that the British Library Labs have put in the public domain. After using machine learning techniques to add meaningful tags to the images, I am creating arrangements and artworks with the […]
