The Clone Selfie

This is a preliminary test for my entry into the National Portrait Gallery's Digital Portraiture Award 2016.

This is a video of a set of tripod selfies taken in front of one of my art works (the Holocene Mass Extinction). They have been processed through google’s deep dream generator trained on a number of Archibald prize finalist’s paintings.

The self portraits remain in essence images of me but they borrow, approximate and draw on other artist’s mark making via appropriation from artificially intelligent neural networks.
