The ‘videorative’ portraits of Sergio Albiac

Sergio Albiac’s videorative portraits are digital paintings that uses a person’s videos as, well, paint. Watch the video above and check the description below:

Painting a Videorative portrait (a generative, narrative and interactive video portrait) starts with collecting personal videos of the person portrayed, tagged by him/her with relevant concepts and descriptions. Then, using a custom developed tool, the artist “paints with meanings” and generates a video portrait, subtitled with generative personal narratives. In the interactive installation version of the work, the viewer can “navigate” through the subject’s mind, opening his/her video memories, accessing their thoughts and revealing hidden connections between the meanings, using real time access to Wikipedia to infer related emotional states. These “data visualizations” create new and unexpected interpretations of the portrait.
