Latent Plates

During my stay at NO SCHOOL Nevers, I created an installation based on the area's history and craftsmanship. Indeed, Nevers is famous for its plates and painting on plates.
Based on the Musée de la Faïence et des Beaux Arts's collection, I trained a GAN ( generative adversarial network) to generate imaginary plates. The result was then projected on actual plates that were fixed to the wall. This video installation showcases the latent walks that were created by this GAN.
