Blue Screen involves collecting hundreds of frames from 1970’s/1980’s “Golden Age” pornography, training a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) with the frames and creating a new video with the images it creates. The result is (safe for work but) undeniably porn, but with all the elements one usually associates with pornography- human bodies in particular- abstracted until they are unrecognizable. The soundtrack too is generated using AI, training an audio generation software on the classic bass heavy synth tracks associated with 1970’s and 80’s sleeze. The resulting short film is an attempt to distill a genre of pornography down to its most essential non-sexual themes, to archive it, and to reanimate the media of the past using technology of the burgeoning future.
