Neural Reflection is a generative audio-visual installation using visual feedback. Machine intelligence has been programmed to learn, encode, and dream about the human face. Its unsupervised visual decoder generates an infinite stream of ever-changing human portraits in real time. The generative soundscape evolves in tandem with the visuals to create a meditative yet unsettling atmosphere.
Neural Reflection is inspired by the recent discoveries that the human brain during resting states creates non-random activity and self-referential processing. By mirroring the human cognitive process, the system offers us a glimpse of ourselves in more ways than one.
