Helena Sarin is a visual artist who uses machine learning techniques - and more specifically GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks), as a new medium for picture making.

Helena Sarin is a visual artist and software engineer working with cutting-edge technologies for tech companies. At the same time, she has done commission work in watercolor and pastel, as well as in the applied arts like fashion, food, and drink styling and photography.

Art and software had always run as parallel tracks in her life —software in the digital realm and art in the analog—until she discovered GANs. Since then, generative models became her primary medium. Sarin is known for her artisanal AI art practice, where she works with small datasets made up of her own sketches, ink drawings, engravings, and photographs, which—through the help of AI technologies—are transformed into images that lie across the digital and the analog realm.

Her still lifes inherit the particularities of the media in her datasets—we see traces of pastels, newspapers, and photographs as well as the specifics of the AI models. The results are colourful, energetic, and highly personal.
