A series of travel postcards depicting imaginary worlds that we will never travel to; never explore; and never see, feel, or touch. Each contains a description which sometimes makes sense and at other times loses meaning altogether. These surreal places are our new travel destinations, reflecting the evolving constraints of our physical being.
The images are generated using a StyleGAN model trained on a personal dataset of landscape and architecture images, and the text is generated using an attention-based model that creates captions based on each image.
As an act of adaptation, these postcards are used to document current thoughts and feelings and then mailed to physically distant friends, family, and acquaintances.
