2022, Dall-E 2, Text Prompt '{Philosophers} eating a burger'

Erik Arkadi Seth

This series shows philosophers in an everyday moment: eating a burger. With the help of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), these thinkers are placed in everyday situations, which transforms their usual representation – often characterized by scientific discourse and iconic portraits – into scenes of simple human action. Due to the peculiarities of the imagination and the functioning of the GANs, representation errors occur.
