Reface

Friday 22nd July 2022, 8 for 8:30pm. RSVP
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

As part of the British Film Institute’s Film Feels: Curious season we have set Ukrainian developers Reface a grand challenge. Could they take a classic film and reface the extras with the faces of the audience watching, and in real time too? On this night, in extraordinary times, we find out.

Based in Edinburgh’s twin city of Kyiv, Reface will use an artificial intelligence to map facial data acquired at Inspace onto the original actor’s bodies. As for the film title, we’re keeping it suitably top secret. For extra deep fakery, the optional dress code is 1963 Paris. Et voilà, a world’s first.

Booking opens at 8pm on 1st July 2022.

Coinciding with a sister installation at the Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem, these dynamic interpretations of Paisley pattern are inspired by both the iconic design and the prized freshwater pearl mussel that used to thrive in the White Cart river running through Paisley town. Each unique, generative form has been specially seeded for Aberdeen.

Motifs from the realm of neoclassical architecture dance and evolve on screen, tracing a journey from the ancient, analogue and physical, to the modern, digital and abstract. Craft techniques such as tiling, mosaic, marquetry, weave and stitch all originated as mathematical pattern structures and here are brought full circle, ‘re-encoded’ as algorithms.
