This series has its origin in the use of artificial intelligence (GAN) for the creation of portraits of false people. This technology is used in particular for the production of Deep Fakes, through computer-generated images so realistic that one could believe them coming from reality.
I appropriate these images which are both unique and ephemeral, to create classic and very “pictorial” portraits of people who have never existed.
