Machine Hallucinations - Renaissance / Sculpture - B

For these GAN-generated AI Data Paintings, Refik Anadol Studio used machine intelligence to filter more than 100.000 photographs of all the Renaissance sculptures created between 1300-1600. Artificial intelligence learns and recreates visual textures that are emblematic of the stone and metal textures of Renaissance sculptures. As the machine re-imagines these historical works of powerful imagination, elevated craftsmanship, and distinguished acumen, these dynamic visuals change their shapes and colors, representing unique, immersive walks through the machine’s latent data universe.
