Prosopagnosia (memory pathology to remember faces) is a project departing from a historical photo archive from a Spanish local newspaper active in the 30’s, devoted to public personalities of the time.

This collection of faces is the input for a G.A.N. (Generative Adversatorial Network) algorithm which develops a machine learning process to generate new faces out of the archive portraits (although it could apply it to any kind of archive).

The result is a new collection of photorealistic images of non existing persons. The final pictures are convincingly photographic but the focus is mainly set on the wonderful sequence of failed attempts that review important steps in art history: Expressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, Picasso, Bacon, Abstraction and so on...
