Vladimir Alexeev (Merzmensch)

Empty Room, (2020)

Empty Room is a theater play, entirely performed by various Artificial Intelligence models. The screenplay was written by GPT-2 (OpenAI), visuals generated with BigGAN and StyleGAN2 (and Artbreeder), music created by JukeBox (OpenAI), voices acting is executed by Replica Studios. With this short movie, I proved a creative capability of a machine. Human is playing the role of curator and director. But the machine dreams its inner worlds. This human-machine collaboration is already here. We have to embrace this chance. We have to accept the beauty of non-human art.
