UPDATE (1/10/19): I have to take a brief hiatus from ReMasterpieces as I have accepted a position at Southern Methodist University as the Associate Director for Research of SMU DataArts. I will return to the project once I'm settled in my new position! You can still contact me at email@example.com.
All the best,
The goal of ReMasterpieces is to recreate paintings stolen and lost or destroyed by the Nazis during World War II. Using small black and white photographs of the missing paintings as my guide, I hope to bring a small amount of closure to families who were terrorized by a fascist regime by recreating the missing paintings and presenting them to the families.
This project began by using Photoshop to recreate the paintings. (See a presentation I gave on ReMasterpieces to the US-UK Fulbright Commission below.) This mode of development was very slow and potentially inaccurate. I am now using deep learning to recreate the paintings. I am currently experimenting. Follow the blog on this website for updates on the project!
