Morphing Figures // 2021

Morphing Figures consists of generated latent space walk videos from a machine learning model based on personal yoga practice pictures. These videos show the morphing of one generated ‘pose’ to another resembling transitions within yoga as well as the subtle trembling of the body when holding a pose or breathing.

The Runway ML software had no knowledge of yoga or the anatomy of the human body. By training the model on only 777 images of myself while practicing yoga, these latent space walk videos resemble movement and transitions which are very similar to yoga almost morphing from one surreal pose to another. This presents an illusion of a machine trying to understand human mindfulness and movement.
