Families separated, friends disconnected, and strangers isolated ———— “Greetings From” is a performed documentation of our current moment in history.
36 travel postcards depict imaginary worlds that we will never travel to; never explore; and never see, feel, or touch. Each contains a description which sometimes makes sense and at other times loses meaning altogether. These images are generated using a StyleGAN model trained on a personal dataset of landscape and architecture images, and the descriptions are created using an attention-based model that generates captions based on each image. These surreal places are our new travel destinations, reflecting the evolving constraints of our physical being.
As an act of adaptation, these postcards are used to document current thoughts and feelings and then mailed to physically distant friends, family, and acquaintances.
