ABOUT THE WORK

Read: AI-Art Pioneer Mike Tyka and His Green NFT Debut

The idea of imaginary people and their use in manipulating public opinion on the internet inspired me to explore this space artistically. Any collective belief, be it religious, economic, or political, can effectively become "real" if that fictitious entity affects the actions of the collective. In that sense, these imaginary people who express their views on social media really exist in the same way that deities do, as long as a group believes in their existence and reality. I was therefore curious to speculate who these fictitious humans might be or what they might look like, which became the inspiration for algorithmically generating faces to create portraits of imaginary people.

In recent years, computer graphics algorithms, especially generative neural networks, have become rather proficient at producing and manipulating media such as image, video, and sound, to a degree that has become hard to distinguish from their real counterparts. The algorithm’s outputs have become increasingly difficult to distinguish from real images. Likewise, those who try to separate wheat from chaff are also increasingly turning to sophisticated machine-learning algorithms to find and filter inaccurate or fake content. We thus have an arms race which is already affecting the nature of the internet, how we build our beliefs of the world around us, how we delegate trust in society, and what we base our own actions on.

Mike Tyka
Mike Tyka is a multi-disciplinary artist and scientist, working both in digital and physical media. He’s the creator of some of the earliest deep neural net artworks, using DeepDream and GANs. His latest generative series "Portraits of Imaginary People" has been shown at ARS Electronica in Linz, Christie's in New York and at the New Museum in Karuizawa (Japan).
