“Beagle and the squeegee” (2018)

I am interested in how GAN can affect the transparency of photograph and the opacity of painting. In particular, I am exploring the attempt to see the possibilities of painting.
In the painting motif, I select the most incomplete and eerie one frame appropriately in the process of moving through the latent space. And it is intended to emphasize ambiguous aspects such as reality and imagination added by generated image by GAN.
My work has no concept or idea in itself, but paradoxically I think that it will be an opportunity to rethink the environment surrounding the image in the post-truth era.
