My work often balances on the boundaries between the artificial and the natural. Through simulations and transformations, reality interweaves with projections of an alternative world, as if you’re wandering around in the mind of a stranger. As an artist I look at portraits and imagine a story, however, this story might not be consistent with the reality of that person.

For a long time I’ve been searching for neutral portraits to be free from these realities. By finding the website thispersondoesnotexist.com, I had discovered my kind of Tinder! I am fascinated by the artificially created portraits on thispersondesnotexist.com: an endless stream of fake portraits. Every time you refresh the site, the network generates a whole new facial image. The algorithm behind it is trained on a huge data set of real images and uses some kind of neural network to come up with new examples. I must confess that I am addicted to it, as soon as I’ve reloaded the page, I’m instantly curious to imagine the next story.
