What is real and what is fiction? The system is trained on millions of photos of actors and actresses. We are using the faces of people in front of the camera to activate portraits with our GAN. The result is an image that examines the concept of identity, pushing the boundaries between the individual that recognizes herself/himself and the collection of faces from the society of spectacle that are sedimented in the neural network.
What I see is myself? It is a fictitious re-creation of myself, the training data of the actors vaporize my image and create a dialogue between me and the celebrities. We see a cinematographic self, independent and separate from my actual self.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
