Morphing Figures explores how machine learning provides a way to invent imagined yoga poses and imitations of the human body. The moving outcomes are reminiscent of the subtle trembling of the body when holding a pose or breathing.
The machine learning software often has no previous knowledge of yoga or the anatomy of the human body. The outcomes are purely based on self-portrait pictures taken during yoga practice. The videos present the machine’s illusions of morphing from one surreal pose to another.
