PROJECT SPACE | THE DEEP FAITH | you look me in the eyes (you make it all seem so easy)15 January 2022 — 6 February 2022
For the first half of Magical Putt Putt, our Project Space will host a solo installation by The Deep Faith – centred around a contemporary, post-internet, blockchain era zoetrope. An ancient form of animation, that created the illusion of movement through rapidly spinning images, Zoetropes (and their new moving-image offspring) index a human obsession with seeing, looking. Featuring built installations, 3D prints, GAN imagery, videos and music the installation explores generative ways of being seen, and watching back.
A love song, a sonnet, a memory, your smell, a candle. A heart shaped key.
“a GAN (generative adversarial network) trained on photographs can generate new photographs that look at least superficially authentic to human observers.”
A picture of you, you looked me in the eyes, we hold more time each day, you wrote to me.
“the generator is not trained to minimize the distance to a specific image, but rather to fool the discriminator. This enables the model to learn in an unsupervised manner.”
I see you in so many things….. but maybe it sees me. I am moving with no control.
A feeling shrine. Falling.
Can it feel me?
On Saturday January 22, The DeepFaith will perform live in the gallery with a combination of experimental sounds and performance.
Space is limited and RSVP is essential.
