This is the real time version of Cloud Face (2012) which are cloud images recognized as faces by AI. A camera continually takes pictures of the sky, and AI looks for faces in the pictures. The found faces get simultaneously shown on screen. For the 6th International Digital Art Biennial, the artists install a camera in Seoul to collect faces from the sky of the city and present the cloud faces on monitors in Arsenal Contemporary Art.
