Reflections – a moving painting by an Artificial Intelligence


“Reflections” is a moving painting by an artificial intelligence, named Albert Iynstein. It reflects on Hong Kong’s fast-paced, often robotic city life, and juxtaposes it with nature’s humanisation in the form of a haiku. Using neural networks developed by Paint A.I., Albert Iynstein studied many visual artworks before his time, namely Picasso, Munch and Hokusai, which inspired him to apply their styles (not filters) to this moving painting artificially and intelligently.

Artificial Intelligent Painter: Albert Iynstein
Artificial Intelligence Developer: Boris Boege
A.I. Assistant Developer: Patrick Kosiol
Director & Haiku: Cassandra Chan
