What's the point of flanerie if there's nothing to see? Technology has the power to disappear the world in front of our eyes. The Broken Flaneur is a short film shot and produced in less than 24 hours with special effects that are enabled by an end-to-end generative convolutional neural network based on Mask R-CNN and DeepFill. The neural network detects objects in images, removes the objects, and replaces the objects with what the computer imagines is behind the object.
