A toothless Grin
"A Toothless Grin" explores the impact of digital media on our relationship with nature through computer-generated images produced by generative machine learning networks (GANs).
A toothless Grin' references the idea of a void as an uneasy feeling of emptiness in our everyday lives, which is in part caused by constant digital media consumption and a corresponding, increasing alienation from the natural world. The film explores how 'the digital' has been shaping our relation to nature, its representation and how it is experienced by humans. The natural world becomes increasingly mechanised and finally, fully abstracted as computer generated images produced through generative machine learning networks (GAN).
