Gruppebilde Bergen 2020

Description (in English)

During year 2020 the artist was collecting a dataset of images both by photographing citizens of Bergen in public spaces and with a open call to upload images through a website. In 2021 the dataset was used to generate new faces both using the whole dataset or partial datasets classified according to age or neighbourhood. The used machine learning system would learn how photographs look like and generate similar ones. Out of several iterations of generated portraits the artist  chose images for a group image which in form of a big tapestry hang besides a second tapestry with images of elected representatives on the walls of Bergen City Hall.

"The final image will become two large tapestries for Bergen City Hall where people and their elected representatives meet."(1)
