  • Title: Visual Indeterminacy in GAN Art
    Writing Type: Paper
    Exhibition: SIGGRAPH 2020: Think Beyond
    Abstract Summary:

    We describe artwork based on GANs with the concept of visual indeterminacy, connecting them to art history and to the science of perception of art. GANs seem predisposed to producing indeterminate images; we hypothesize about why this is and where to go next.
