björk: tabula rasa

Directed by Tobias Gremmler “When creating the video, I was deeply inspired by the music and lyrics of Tabula Rasa. The visual transformation of Björkinto faun-like flowers and mountainous landscapes embodies the utopian concept of a harmonious coexistence between nature and human based on empathy.” – Tobias Gremmler

The elaboration of the director: I used stop-motion animation as technique of expression to explain my confusion and the situation. In real space, I used the finished product to cast a small field, which seems to be magnified in the image. People of different contexts will get a same feeling after watching the work and they will put their own situation into the interpretation of the work. To create is to know oneself and the world. This piece of work is an “image poem” left for myself, trying to tell myself not to stick to an acre of land and be bounded by a self-centered strong gravitational and magnetic field. It is the first alarm bell of my future life, as the poem composed by Knecht in Hesse’s novel Das Glasperlenspiel— “Each beginning contains magic power, which will protect us and help us to survive. We happily pass through one after another spaces. We will never confine to a certain provincialism. The spirit of the universe makes us free from restraint and it inspires us to climb up and move forward.”

Artificial Intelligence Can Create Faces Never Before Seen

Google AI Faces
By Graham Templeton on June 8, 2017
When you’re an A.I. researcher at Google, even your days off are filled with neural nets. Mike Tyka is a Google scientist who recently helped create the company’s DeepDream venture, but this week he posted details of a personal project that could someday make DeepDream seem primitive. That famous program works by basically blending together elements of other pictures, and then modifying that collage, but Tyka’s new approach takes the much more difficult and potentially rewarding path: teaching an A.I. to create all-new portraits from scratch.
“I don’t mind if the results are not necessarily realistic but fine texture is important no matter what even if it’s surreal but [high-resolution] texture,” Tyka commented Tuesday on his blog.
How It Works
The approach uses “generative adversarial networks” (GANs) to refine the A.I.’s abilities over time. GANs are neural networks that work in opposition to one another; one GAN draws a picture from scratch (the generative part) and another attempts to tell whether the picture is real or A.I.-generated (the adversarial part). The GANs will eventually trend toward better and better looking portraits, as one learns to trick its adversary network into misidentifying its creations as real. When this happens, the falsifying network learns from its mistake, and gets better at picking out false pictures in the future. In this way, both the generative and adversarial abilities of the system progress together, and one always keeps driving evolution in the other.

Featured Artist: Artificially Awake

Artificially Awake is the brand name for VJ content produced by Kaine Van Riel. A Visual Effects artist and event production designer based in London, England.

Over the years Artificially Awake’s visuals have gained great weight and notoriety within the music scene for being some of the most impactful and synchronous visuals on the market.

Originally educated in computer generated imagery for film, Kaine swiftly made his mark on the industry by transitioning into the world of musical visualization. Developing a new and yet unseen way of manipulating an audience’s perception of video.

He accomplished this by producing mind bending illusionary 3D animations into a format which could be perceived as being the correct perspective from any given angle. Thereby fulfilling the illusion of being within a digital environment imagined by the artist himself.

This notion propelled artificially awake to become a leader in illusionary content creation for festivals, stage performances, commercial applications, alongside the notorious Ibiza music scene where it all began!

Since founding Artificially Awake, Kaine has worked independently as well as among teams of talented production companies on what can only be described as one of the most impressive resume’s seen to date.
