Style Transfer Mirror

Take a look into Gene Kogan’s mirror and you might be surprised by your own reflection. Captured by a webcam, your image becomes a living and moving work of art as if it had been created by the greatest painters, from van Gogh to Picasso.  This style transfer, developed by the artist, uses artificial intelligence (AI) to determine the main characteristics of the image and converts them into the style of the great painters.
