Home Alone is an AI generated video that uses StyleGANS, a type of machine learning that pits two AI agents against each other to generate the best solution to a problem. In this case, the StyleGANS is an improvement over older GANS in that the output’s quality is of much higher quality and that gives control over the style of generated synthetic images. In this case, Ray LC has fed the GANS a series of images of the living spaces of diverse individuals and abandoned spaces throughout Hong Kong. The resulting images become a sort of morphing pastiche of spaces that people move in and out that reflects the ebb and flow of people in the city, abandoning it for a variety of reasons and eventually returning to their homes in heart or mind.
