The Perfect Human

完美人类

2021
Asia Premiere

Inspired by Jørgen Leth's Black and White cult classic The Perfect Human (1968) which raises many simple yet philosophical questions about who the perfect human is, what it means to be human, or perfect, this animation The Perfect Human applies unsupervised machine learning and experimental filmmaking techniques to reexamine and question the contested notion of perfection in the eyes of artificial intelligence. Later the remake of the computer-generated moving images are transformed from digital recreation to an analog artifact of transparencies which completed the cycles from analog film to digital video and back to 16mm format, from motion pictures to still images, and then latent-space interpolation, from a proxy of human memories to the machine learning construct.

受约根·莱斯的黑白电影《完美人类》中提出的许多简单却带有哲思的问题的启发,这部同名动画短片应用了无监督机器学习与实验电影技巧,重新审视并质问人工智能视角下充满争议的“完美”的概念。翻拍的计算机生成的动态图像从数字重制品转化为透明胶片的人造制品,完成了从胶片影像到数字视频再到16毫米格式的更替,从动态电影到静止图像再到机器学习概念中的隐空间插值的循环,从人类记忆的代理到机器学习的结构体的轮回。
