Work in Progress 2020-2021
‘Gruppebilde Bergen’ is a work in progress for Bergen City Hall. Through Fall and Winter 2020/2021 residents of Bergen, Norway, were invited to contribute their portrait to the project. The submitted portraits were processed by machine learning technology, in order to create new portraits of “Bergeners” for two large tapestries for Bergen City Hall.
Portraits were collected through an online open call and photo shoots at various public spaces around Bergen. Machine learning and database setup: BEK – Bergen senter for elektronisk kunst and SEDB – Sindre Sørensen. Digital jacquard weaving: Kristina D. Aas for Innvik AS.
