Up close, you mainly see a jumble of abstract lines, an almost chaotic amalgamation of shapes and patterns, just like the incomprehensible formulas that AI uses to calculate. I wanted the viewer to first experience a sense of confusion when approaching the artwork. But once they step back and see the portrait, I hope they will be surprised and feel an unexpected emotional connection. With the portraits I try to evoke a sense of connection, while they are not real people, but purely the result of cool AI calculations.
My intention was to make the viewer think about what is real and perception, what is abstract and concrete. It is an invitation to look at the world from different perspectives and to realize that sometimes distance is needed to understand the whole.
