"STARDUST: an experiment in generative portraiture" by Sergio Albiac
With the help of the internet, Albiac has set out on a project to capture as many faces in star clusters as he possibly can before his big flickr Stardust Portrait exhibition. If you'd like to participate, just crop down a photo and share it through Google Drive.
“Life is finite. Creativity isn’t. An artist has the potential to create infinite artworks but only some of them will see the light due to the constraint of time. What if we use technology to outsource the creation of art so more of these potential artworks are finally created? Modelling artistic decisions into software would provide a generative assistant that could even survive an artist in the creation of meaningful works of visual art. This project is a first experiment around this concept.”
