In this piece of the Teratoma Series, Mario Klingemann explores flesh as prime material of his art. The stretchiness of skin mirrors the image distortion from the use of artificial intelligence. After building a photo bank of bodies, the artist processed his images to generate his black and white piece with adversarial networks (GAN). In this composition, bright and ghostly faces seem to distort and fade into folds of flesh. The abstraction relies on blurring lines into a monochromatic visual to present an uncanny vision of the body.
