FZT-8050, 2019

The FZT-8050 is a fictional super computer built in the late 70s that is capable of analyzing frequencies connected to future events.

The machine listens for a question to answer and responds once an electrical circuit is closed through a glove made of copper fabric.

Using a StyleGAN model trained on spectrograms from audio recorded at a ringing rock site in Upper Black Eddy, Pennsylvania, the computer plays a recording and displays a spectrograph shape.
