WanderGAN (2019). An interactive search journey in the imagined visions of a neural network. Given a photo, an artificial intelligence painter tries to recreate its likeness, and takes us through a visual journey in its search for the perfect reproduction. The spectator can intervene in the process, and focus on areas of her interest in the intermediate imagery. The painter will then shift its efforts to recreate the chosen impression. The emerging experience may resemble wandering within a vision or a dream. The displayed images are the result of a real-time evolutionary search to solve inverse rendering for the BigGAN decoder.
