Plastic Biosphere

Kıvanç Tatar, 2020
premiered at Ars Electronica 2020

A silhouette of the audience’s body pixelates an anthropocene landscape that is stylized by artificial intelligence using images of plastic.

Plastic Biosphere is an interactive artwork that touches on the imperative coexistence of humankind and plastics. The artwork uses artificial intelligence architectures to generate interactive music and moving images that copy the style of images with plastics, onto the sceneries of post-anthropocene while asking,

How much plastic have we left?

Tech Details:
- The visuals in this work uses two AI systems for frame-by-frame consistent style transformation. 
- Music in this work is generated in realtime by using an AI system called MASOM
