La Fábrica de Luz is considered one of the 100 jewels of Spanish industrial heritage by the TICCIH. Located in Ponferrada, in the province of León, the building corresponds to the former power station of the Minero Siderúrgica de Ponferrada. It now houses El Museo de la Energía that exposes the history of electricity generation technologies. As it is an emblem of the production of light and a centre for scientific and cultural dissemination we have decided to introduce a texture of the darkness to remember some parts of its industrial past. For this reason we have combined its light with the dark textures of Hieronymus Bosch´s Inferno.

Sobre la colección

This collection turns some of the most representative elements of the Spanish industrial heritage into artworks. We combine images of each heritage element with the textures of different art masterpieces using a neural style transfer algorithm to generate compositions of approximately 600x480 pixels. Each image is combined with different textures to show multiple aesthetic interpretations of the same location by modifying the starting images and weight parameter of each style. We also do this by presenting different points of view of some of the locations. Several of the buildings or places in the collection have been chosen as a result of their unique characteristics that are explained in the descriptions of the creations that are part of the collection.

This collection has been created with funding from "Ayudas para la modernización e innovación de las industrias culturales y creativas 2022-Ministerio de Cultura y Deporte" from the Spanish Government.
