將SELFIE化為藝術|BECOME YOUR OWN ARTIST WITH GOOGLE ART TRANSFER

近期多個藝術展覽及社交活動都被取消或延期,因此不少文化藝術團體都選擇利用線上平台為群眾帶來新的藝術靈感。當中,Google 藝術與文化(Google Arts & Culture)的應用程式不但能讓大家透過手機平面暢遊世界各地的美術館和博物館,還新增了一個「Art Transfer」功能。

Recently, many art exhibitions and events have been cancelled or postponed and many organisations brought their artistic outlets online. Amidst the flood of artistic talent on the internet, Google’s Arts & Culture app offers more than just art appreciation. Not only does the app allow you to travel the worlds’ art museums on your phone but also launched a timely interactive feature on their app: Art Transfer.

大家有否想過自己拍攝的照片也可增添館藏名畫的藝術元素﹖ 這個新增的功能就能將大家拍攝的相片與美術珍藏結合成全新藝術品。有別於其他自拍濾鏡,「Art Transfer」利用 Google AI 演算法模型分析兩張圖像,然後整合成一張全新圖像,用家一機在手就能跟 Google 藝術與文化創作出獨一無二的藝術風格。有賴英國國家美術館及日本 MOA 美術館等文化藝術機構協助,提供多款藝術作品包括蒙娜麗莎、梵高、Andy Warhol、草間彌生等作品風格。

The ‘Art Transfer’ function allows users to take their own photos and combine them with famous existing artworks as a whole new creation. Unlike other image filtering apps, ‘Art Transfer’ is powered by an algorithmic model created by Google AI that analyses uploaded photos and algorithmically recreates the images with inspiration from the specific art styles chosen. With the help of cultural institutions around the world such as the National Gallery (London) and the MOA Museum of Art, the app was able to incorporate a variety of art styles including the infamous Mona Lisa and the works of Van Gogh, Andy Warhol as well as Kusama Yayoi, etc.
